9 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Renaissance action film is being represented by Fortitude at this week’s Efm.

Game Of Thrones mainstay Peter Dinklage will star opposite Alexander Skarsgard as a Machiavellian right-hand man in $14m renaissance action film The Dwarf.

Production is scheduled to commence in July in Italy on the project that Fortitude International has introduced to international buyers at the European Film Market (Efm).
