Legendary has closed a deal with Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa to star and produce the action adventure "Good Bad & Undead". The film is based on an original idea by Mark Swift & Damian Shannon.
Dinklage will portray Van Helsing, the last in a line of vampire hunters. He has an uneasy partnership with Momoa’s vampire character, who has taken a vow never to kill again. Together they run a scam from town to town, where Van Helsing pretends to vanquish the vampire for money. But they wind up on the run after a massive bounty is put on the vampire.
The studio has also closed the deal for Max Barbakow to direct the upcoming film, based on an original idea by Mark Swift & Damian Shannon. Legendary unveiled the project on Wednesday, touting it as “‘Midnight Run’ in a Bram Stoker world.”
Barbakow most recently directed Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti’s “Palm Springs,” which broke the record for the biggest sale in Sundance history when it was acquired by Neon and Hulu at the 2020 film festival for $17.5 million and 69 cents. His other credits include “The Duke” and the autobiographical “Mommy, I’m a Bastard.”
Dinklage starred in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” — for which he won four Emmys, recently signed on for Last Sons Of America. His other credits include My Dinner with Hervé, Avengers: Infinity War and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Dinklage will produce Good Bad & Undead with David Ginsberg through their production company Estuary Films. Dinklage is repped by CAA and attorney Karl Austen.
Aquaman Star, Momoa next will be seen as Duncan Idaho in Legendary’s Dune from director Denis Villeneuve. He recently finished production on Netflix’s Sweet Girls, and he most recently starred in the billion-dollar grosser Aquaman, which became the biggest DC title ever, and the series See for Apple TV+ and Frontier for Netflix. He is represented by WME.
