The 49-year-old is not only set to play a part in the film, but is also set to produce the fairytale classic, according to Variety.

The actor has played a main role on Game of Thrones since the beginning of the programme, but with the final season set to be released next year – Peter has started setting up new projects.

The iconic fairytale was first popularised in 1812 as part of a collection by the Brothers Grimm, but the story is said to have originated 4,000 years ago.

The tale follows a miller who lied to his king, telling him that his daughter could spin straw into gold.

The king locks the miller’s daughter in a tower full of straw and a spinning wheel, threatening to kill her unless she spins all of the straw into gold.

A goblin-like creature, Rumpelstiltskin, arrives in the tower and offers to turn the straw into gold in return for a number of trades, including her first-born.

The end of the fairytale has varied throughout time, but it is unknown exactly what the plot of the new adaption will be.
