Exclusive: Jason Momoa And Peter Dinklage Making Vampire Comedy The Good, The Bad, And The Undead, Plot Revealed
Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage play a pair of con artists in a new vampire comedy.
Game of Thrones stars Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage will reunite for a new movie titled The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, which sees the Aquaman star taking on the role of a vampire hunter and the X-Men actor serving as his undead prey. But, according to our trusted and proven sources, there’s a twist: the vampire and the vampire hunter are partners, using their roles to scam villagers. Both Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage have more than proven their comic abilities in the past, so it will be fun to see them in a full-on comedy together.
The plot of The Good, the Bad and the Undead centers around the pair running a con on unsuspecting villagers in which Peter Dinklage’s vampire terrorizes a town and his co-star Jason Momoa comes in and pretends to defeat the monster for payment. Notably, it seems that Dinklage’s nosferatu is a vegan vampire, so it is likely that the two con artists are not trying to actively hurt any of the villagers, just to swindle them.
The mechanics of a vegan vampire are an interesting thing to consider, and we are curious to see how the Jason Momoa-Peter Dinklage movie handles it. Will they go the Bunnicula route and have Dinklage’s vampire only drink the fluids out of vegetables for his unholy sustenance? Will it be something weirder and more convoluted? Only time will tell.
It is also notable that the con that the pair runs on towns is essentially the same as the 1996 fantasy adventure film Dragonheart, in which a grizzled vampire hunter (Dennis Quaid) forms a partnership with the last remaining dragon (voiced by Sean Connery) to profit off of villages by the latter pretending to attack and the former pretending to defend. Still, there are only so many plots in the world and we have full faith in Momoa and Dinklage to have fun with it.
Both Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage had their breakout roles in HBO’s era-defining hit Game of Thrones, though they never shared any scenes. Momoa appeared primarily in the first season of the show, in which he played the fearsome Khal Drogo; his character was smothered to death by his wife Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) after being poisoned by blood magic and would appear only in visions in later seasons.
In contrast, Peter Dinklage was one of the series’ primary leads for the entirety of its eight seasons, with his character Tyrion Lannister being acclaimed as one of its most nuanced and sympathetic figures. Plus, he was the funniest one by a long measure.
Hopefully, we will be seeing some of that famous Lannister wit and Aquaman sarcasm in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. It is likely that the duo of conmen will find some other force than angry villagers getting in their way, so we looked forward to seeing how Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage handle it.
