Dominic Cooper has been bonding with Peter Dinklage for their upcoming movie My Dinner With Herve, his co-star has revealed.
Peter is set to portray French dwarf Herve Villechaize - best known for his roles as Tattoo on 70s TV series Fantasy Island and evil henchman Nick Nack in the James Bond film The Man With The Golden Gun - in the indie drama, while Dominic plays the reporter who gets the final interview before Herve committed suicide in 1993.
"It's ongoing. We haven't pulled any knives on each other yet!" he told Playlist.
"Sometimes it's tricky to just show up for the first day, so it's good to have the time together first, and we'll have more when we get into the project."
Peter added: "We're casting the rest of the parts as we speak, so everything's starting to happen. Hopefully we'll be shooting next year."
Writer-director Sacha Gervasi of Anvil! The Story Of Anvil fame has written and is directing the drama, based the script on his own interview with Herve, which was originally intended for a magazine feature article.
