Lawrence Sher Directing O' Lucky Day
The R-rated Peter Dinklage leprechaun comedy

Back in October we brought you the news that Peter Dinklage had signed up for a Bad Santa-like "R-rated leprechaun comedy". At the time the Paramount project was untitled and didn't have a director in place, but both those issues have now been rectified. The film is called O' Lucky Day, and the director will be Lawrence Sher.

Sher is following Wally Pfister's recent form, seizing the director's chair following a successful career as a cinematographer. In particular, he's known for his association with Todd Phillips, acting as DP on all three Hangover films and Due Date. He also shot Garden State, The ChumscrubberDan In Real Life, Paul and The Dictator. But it's not all indies and comedies: he recently contributed some additional photography to Godzilla

The only plot synopsis available for O' Lucky Day so far is that it involves Dinklage trying to pass himself off as a real leprechaun. He may be needing to practice his Irish accent. Members of the Empire staff would be happy to help him with that.

Andrew Dodge (Jason Bateman's forthcoming Bad Words) wrote the screenplay, and Dinklage himself is among the producers. We'll next see the star in Game Of Thrones' fourth season, which starts next month.
