Peter Dinklage to Star in Adaptation of ‘The Thicket’

Peter Dinklage is attached to star in the adaptation of author Joe Lansdale’s crime thriller “The Thicket” for Gianni Nunnari’s production company Hollywood Gang.

The pic will be produced by Nunnari. Dinklage and his long-time manager David Ginsberg will also produce through their newly formed production company. Shannon Gaulding, who works with Nunnari, will also serve as producer on the project.

Set in feral East Texas in the early 20th century, this dark thriller follows an innocent young man named Jack who goes on an epic quest to rescue his sister after she has been kidnapped by violent killer Cut Throat Bill and his gang. Jack enlists the help of a crafty bounty hunter named Shorty (Dinklage), a grave-digging alcoholic son of an ex-slave and a street-smart prostitute. The three track the girl into the deadly no-man’s land known as The Big Thicket — a place where blood and chaos reign.

“That Joe Lansdale’s dark vision will be brought to life by the brilliantly talented Peter Dinklage starring as Shorty — it is a dream of mine,” said Nunnari. “This is the kind of original movie with edge and style that Hollywood Gang is hungry for; luckily we found all these things in ‘The Thicket.’ We cannot wait to share this movie with audiences around the world.”

Dinklage is repped by Ginsberg, CAA and attorney Karl Austen. He can be seen next in Sony’s “Pixels.”
