Tell me that Alexander Skarsgard and Peter Dinklage have signed on to make a "Renaissance action movie" called The Dwarf and sure, I might side-eye you for a hot second, but I'll still pencil it down for future consumption. For sure. But then you go and tell me that the film will be directed by the wholly underrated Brad Anderson, he who made Session 9 and Transsiberian and The Machinist, and I'll scratch out that pencil and I will re-write it in permanent marker, I will! (pic via) Here's how the movie's described (thx Mac):
"Dinklage will play a fearless man who proves his mettle and earns the trust of a prince after he conquers an all-time wrestling champion in a contest. Once he has jockeyed for position next to the seat of power, the dwarf pledges his undying loyalty and resorts to assassinations and subterfuge in his merciless quest to protect his new master."
