Dinklage and Ginsberg will produce through their Estuary Films banner.

According to sources, the film is still in deep development and would not be Dinklage’s next project after “Game of Thrones” ends.

Plot details are being kept under wraps aside from the film focusing on the mythical character that Dinklage would play.

The character first appeared in a Brothers Grimm tale and follows a miller who lies to the king, telling him that his daughter can spin straw into gold. The king calls for the girl, shuts her in a tower room filled with straw and a spinning wheel, and demands she spin the straw into gold by morning or he will cut off her head. When she has given up all hope, an imp-like creature, aka Rumpelstiltskin, appears in the room and spins the straw into gold in return for her necklace.

It is unknown if the story will be set in modern times or its original setting.
