Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage to star in Paul Dektor's American Dreamer

Dreams keep our hopes alive. They lift our aims higher and help us achieve something satisfying in life. Sometimes these dreams lead people into doing something they shouldn’t. They don’t realise it until its too late. Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage is set to appear in Paul Dektor’s movie American Dreamer. His new role will show him facing the same dilemma.

The movie is said to based on a true story segment from the This American Life podcast. It will be similar in tone to Melfi’s St. Vincent. American Dreamer shows Dr Phil Loder (Peter Dinklage), a low-level, adjunct professor of economics at Harvard, whose grand dream of owning a home is tragically out of reach. It is until an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes his way when a lonely, childless, near-death widow (Shirley MacLaine) offers Phil her sprawling estate for pennies. But Phil quickly learns the deal is too good to be true.

American Dreamer is banked by Peter Dinklage and David Ginsberg’s Estuary Films, Theodore Melfi and Kim Quinn’s Goldenlight Film, Paul Dektor and Flying Firebird LLC. The project is currently in pre-production.

Dinklage will also be seen in the comedic thriller I Care A Lot. Are you excited to watch Peter Dinklage once again on the silver screen? Talk to us in the comments below!

Here’s why Wilko Johnson didn’t return as Ilyn Payne after season 2 of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones boasted a host of remarkable characters that had a lasting presence on the audience’s memory. Some were brave and honourable like Jon Snow, while there were some who were downright scary. One of these scary ones included the silent knight Ser Ilyn Payne. He was a part of some of the most pivotal scenes of the show, including Ned Stark’s execution. The character was played by English guitarist, singer and songwriter Wilko Johnson.

Born John Peter Wilkinson, the music pioneer was instrumental to the punk movement of the 70s. He was the original lead guitarist for the Essex pub rock band, Dr Feelgood. The punk rock icon made his television debut when he joined the cast of Thrones for its first season back in 2011.

As with George R.R. Martin’s original books, Payne was originally intended to have a much more prominent role as the series went on. Unfortunately, HBO was forced to phase out the character following Johnson’s declining health.

The musician announced he had been diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer in 2013. Season two, episode nine, Blackwater, marked his last appearance in the series. Thankfully, the musician and occasional actor has since made a full recovery. At the age of 73, he has been able to continue his music career.

How do you think the story would have changed if Payne had stayed throughout the series? Tell us in the comments below!
