Peter Dinklage signs on for The Croods 2
Game of Thrones‘ Peter Dinklage will be joining the prehistoric family on their next adventure in the long in-development sequel The Croods 2, according to Deadline.
In 2013, the world was introduced to the first family of the prehistoric era, The Croods. The Academy Award-nominated comedy about a clan dealing with their changing world captivated global audiences, reminding us of the timeless importance of family… and just how little we’ve evolved.
In September 2020, DreamWorks Animation invites you on an all-new adventure back in time with The Croods 2. Returning stars Nicolas Cage (Mandy), Emma Stone (Maniac), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2), Catherine Keener (Kidding), Cloris Leachman (American Gods) and Clark Duke (I’m Dying Up Here) have also welcomed Leslie Mann (Blockers) to the film’s cast as the family face their biggest threat since leaving the cave: another family.
The development of the film has been a long tormented road, with production initially set for two years after the release of the first film, but release dates continually were pushed back before DreamWorks announced its cancellation back in November 2016. Following Universal’s acquisition of the animation studio, it was announced production had been revived with its new 2020 release date.
Dinklage, who was most recently seen in this year’s blockbuster hit Avengers: Infinity War, will be seen in the upcoming HBO drama film My Dinner with Hervé, which is set to premiere on Oct. 20, and in the final season of Game of Thrones, which will premiere sometime early next year.
The Croods 2 is set to hit theaters on September 18, 2020.
