“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage is attached to star in the film adaptation of author Joe Lansdale’s dark crime thriller “The Thicket” for Hollywood Gang. Gianni Nunnari will produce.
Set in early 20th century East Texas, the story follows an innocent young man named Jack who goes on an epic quest to rescue his sister after she has been kidnapped by violent killer Cut Throat Bill and his gang.
Jack enlists the help of a crafty bounty hunter (Dinklage), a grave-digging alcoholic son of an ex-slave, and a street-smart prostitute. The three track the girl into a deadly no-man’s land called The Big Thicket.
