According to reports actor Peter Dinklage has signed up for the forthcoming Rumpelstiltskin movie.

The Game of Thrones star – who was born with achondroplasia – could be playing the fairy tale character in the film written by Patrick Ness (Chaos Walking, A Monster Calls)

In the story a miller pretends to the king his daughter can spin straw into gold. The king locks the girl in a tower and tests her father’s words, she is told if she fails her head will be cut off by the guards.

A small man called Rumpelstiltskin comes to her rescue and spins the straw into gold if she hands over her necklace, but unknown to the King’s daughter the bargain comes with a serious price.

With Dinklage currently filming the final series of Game of Thrones and picking up an Oscar-nomination for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri as well as appearing in blockbuster smash Avengers: Infinity War could we see Peter playing the fairy tale character which kept us awake at night when we were young?

Peter Dinklage next role will be in My Dinner With Herve
