JASON MOMOA AND PETER DINKLAGE TEAM UP FOR VAMPIRE ACTION/COMEDY GOOD BAD & UNDEAD

Deadline is reporting that Game of Thrones alums Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage will be joining forces in a new action adventure film called Good Bad & Undead.

In Good Bad & Undead, which is based on an original idea by Mark Swift and Damian Shannon (Freddy vs. Jason), Dinklage will play Van Helsing, last in a long line of vampire hunters. He develops an uneasy partnership with a Vampire (Momoa) who has taken a vow never to kill again. Together they 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. The intent is Midnight Run in a Bram Stoker world.

While some may see this as an unlikely combo, I think this is great casting, and a brilliant idea for a movie. Quiet as it’s kept I’m sick and tired of seeing Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in everything (together and separate). While I am a fan of both actors, I’m not familiar with Jason doing comedy in the vein of someone like John Cena in Blockers, or Dave Batista in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. My guess is that Jason will bring a “bro”surfer vibe to his vampire character, and with Dinklage on board, his level of brilliant acting and the straight-laced approach to playing Van Helsing will definitely elevate Momoa’s performance.
