Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage To Team Up For New Vampire Movie ‘Good Bad & Undead’
We couldn't be happier to see two of TV and film's finest, hairiest dudes working together.
The actors, who play Tyrion Lannister and Khal Drogo in the hit HBO show, have been cast in a new action horror flick about vampire hunters, Deadline reports.

The pair are said to have made a deal to produce as well as star in the action-adventure, which is based on an original idea by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, the writers of hit horror films Friday the 13th and Freddy vs. Jason.
Dinklage is set to play Van Helsing, the last in a long line of vampire hunters. Can't you just see him in the role? Somehow, even the name is a good fit.
The Van Helsing character enters into an "uneasy partnership" with a vampire (Momoa) who has taken a vow never to kill again.
Things get chaotic as the pair run a scam from town to town, where Van Helsing pretends to vanquish the vampire for money.

But when a massive bounty is put on the vampire's head, everything in this dangerous world full of monsters and magic is now after them.
Described as a combination of Midnight Run and the shadowy world of Bram Stoker, the film combines elements of action, comedy and vampiric adventure.
Anyone else getting echoes of mockumentary vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows, too?
According to Deadline, Dinklage will produce Good Bad & Undead with David Ginsberg through their production company Estuary Films.
The news will no doubt be welcomed by GOT's devoted fanbase, who loved watching Dinklage and Momoa as the big male influences for Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen.
Further details of the project, including an air date, have yet to be released.
