The prolific Monjo is also writing the screenplay for Farscape, a movie spin-off of the sci-fi series that ran on the Nine Network and the Sci-Fi Channel in the Us, for Jim Henson Productions, to be directed by Brian Henson.
Dinklage would play a dwarf detective in The Beasts of Valhalla, based on a series of novels by the late George C. Chesbro. Monjo read the books years ago but could not think of an actor who was right for the role of the sleuth named Mongo until he saw Dinklage in Game of Thrones.
.It.s a grounded sci-fi series,. says Monjo, who flies to New York next month to discuss the project with Dinklage, with whom he has corresponded.
