My Dinner with Herve teaser trailer, HBO comedy debuts in September
The upcoming comedy biopic My Dinner with Hervé starring Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan has received a premiere date from the premium cable network for a Saturday, Oct. 20 release at 8 p.m. EST. Check out the first teaser trailer in the player below!
Currently in post-production, My Dinner With Hervé explores an unlikely friendship that evolves over one wild night in LA between struggling journalist Danny Tate, loosely based on writer-director Sacha Gervasi, and actor Hervé Villechaize, resulting in life-changing consequences for both.
Written and directed by Gervasi (The Terminal, Hitchcock) from a story by he and Sean Macaulay, My Dinner With Hervé is based on Gervasi’s own experience interviewing Herve Villechaize in 1993, just days before the actor killed himself.
“He interviewed Hervé right before he killed himself,” Dinklage told The New York Times of the project back in 2012. “…After he killed himself, Sacha realized Hervé’s interview was a suicide note.”
Peter Dinklage can soon be seen reprising his role as Tyrion Lannister on the seventh season of HBO’s Game of Thrones before joining the superhero ensemble Avengers: Infinity War in a mystery role. Jamie Dornan, meanwhile, will return for the final Fifty Shades of Grey film, Fifty Shades Freed, in 2018. He’s also set to play Will Scarlet in Lionsgate’s upcoming Robin Hood. Andy García is about to begin production on the film Ana.
My Dinner With Hervé is executive produced by Gervasi and Dinklage alongside Jessica de Rothschild, Ross Katz, Richard Middleton and Steven Zaillian. Garrett Basch and David Ginsberg will serve as co-executive producer.
