Macon Blair, known for the Sundance film I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, will write and direct the project, described as a contemporary reimagining that will subvert the superhero genre a la Deadpool (2016). Troma founders Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, director of the original, will produce the new outing.
Dinklage starred as Tyron Lannister from 2011-19 on HBO’s Game of Thrones, earning four Emmys and a Golden Globe for the role. He had a small role in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and played an antagonist in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). He is currently in production on director Joe Wright’s Cyrano.
Dinklage is repped by CAA & Jackoway Austen.
