Peter Dinklage, best known as Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, is attached to play the title role in Sony’s upcoming Rumpelstiltskin. Dinklage is also attached to produce the film, with Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls) writing the screenplay. With Game of Thrones ending its epic run next year, the series’ ensemble cast is in high demand. Details are still forthcoming about the film, but fingers crossed it will be a Maleficent-style re-imagining of the classic Brother Grimm fairy tale told from the point of view of Rumple himself.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. She currently lives in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband and two poorly behaved rescue dogs. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
