"Thrones" Stars Set For "Frog," Garbo

"Game of Thrones" scene-stealer Peter Dinklage has signed on to star in Mark Palansky's film adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe revenge story "Hop Frog".

The story follows a puppeteer who poses as a court jester to exact revenge on the knights who murdered his uncle and kidnapped the woman he loves.

Meanwhile, his fellow 'Thrones' co-star Carice van Houten has been cast as cinematic icon Greta Garbo in a new as-yet-untitled biopic about the Swedish star.

The story will chronicle the film legend's humble beginnings as shopgirl in Stockholm to her rise to become one of the world's most enigmatic beauties.
