Right. Bitching and whining aside, there is one bit of news about the movie that might save it from being a complete disaster: the magnificent Peter Dinklage is in it. Apparently the only human being actually in the cast so far, Dinklage will be playing a villain named Simon Bar Sinister (which somehow, accord to the The Hollywood Reporter, actually says "Simon Bastard." You clearly have to be smarter than I am to understand that.) and just may make at least parts of the movie worth watching. Maybe. I just hope they're paying him so much that he won't care if (Ha! I said "if.") the movie tanks.
Dinklage's humiliation begins next month in Rhode Island - let's hope they find him some other humans to act with before the cameras start rolling.
