This has to be the most unlikely movie team-up since Schwarzenegger and DeVito were Twins!
Game of Thrones alumni Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa are in active talks to headline and produce a new vampire horror/comedy Good Bad & Undead, as reported by Deadline. The Legendary film–to be directed by Max Barbakow (Palm Springs)–is described tongue-in-cheek as “Midnight Run set in a Bram Stoker world”.
The tantalizing storyline, according to reports, will follow Dinklage (he of four Emmy Awards) portraying the iconic vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing as he forges an unusual bond with a vampire played by Momoa (he of Aquaman fame). But this vampire has taken a vow never to kill again. Sounds like a difficult promise to keep. What results is the duo traveling from town to town, staging fake vampire attacks. That’s when the good townspeople–right on schedule–hire Van Helsing to destroy the vampire.The con job reportedly goes smoothly until the vampire is slapped with a hefty bounty that attracts real vampire killers from every corner of this world filled with magic and monsters.
The movie is based on an idea from Mark Swift and Damian Shannon, the two writers responsible for Freddy vs. Jason and the 2009 version of Friday the 13th. The two screenwriters also are hard at work on an untitled project that Sam Raimi is directing, according to reports.
