Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) is attached to star in an untitled comedy pitch from “Bad Words” scribe Andrew Dodge, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Paramount will produce the comedy, with Mary Parent and Cale Boyter via studio-based Disruption Entertainment.
The end product is said to be an R-rated comedy, “wrapped around an emotional heart”. It apparently plays off Dinklage’s size, being that he plays a guy who tells people he’s a leprechaun.
The trade says it’s of the same ilk as “Bad Santa”.
Dinklage next appears in Fox’s “X-Men : Days of Future Past”.
