Peter Dinklage of Game of Thrones will be starring in the Rumpelstiltskin movie. Sources told variety.com that Sony is in development on Rumpelstiltskin movie with Dinklage attached to star and produce.

Patrick Ness has been brought on to pen the script with Karen Rosenfelt, Circle of Confusion's Matt Smith and David Alpert, David Ginsberg, and Josh Weinstock also producing. Sources say the film is still in deep development and would not be Dinklage's next project after "Game of Thrones" ends.

They add, however, that it is a priority for the actor and studio.

Plot details are being kept under wraps aside from the film focusing on the mythical character that Dinklage would play. The character first appeared in a Brothers Grimm tale and follows a miller who lies to the king, telling him that his daughter can spin straw into gold.

The king calls for the girl, shuts her in a tower room filled with straw and a spinning wheel, and demands she spin the straw into gold by morning or he will cut off her head. When she has given up all hope, an imp-like creature, also known as Rumpelstiltskin, appears in the room and spins the straw into gold in return for her necklace.

Though the return is good in the short term, Rumpelstiltskin's motives lie in the long term and end up costing the girl more than she could have bargained for.

There have been many variations of the story over time and, most recently, the character has played a major role in the long-running series Once Upon a Time with Robert Carlyle playing the character.

It is unknown if the story will be set in modern times or its original setting.

Dinklage recently hit a new milestone by recording his seventh Emmy nomination for Game of Thrones, the most nominations for any actor for playing the same character.

On the film side, Dinklage was most recently seen in the Oscar-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Avengers: Infinity War.
