Daniel Mays has joined the cast of HBO Films My Dinner With Hervé.
Written by Sacha Gervasi and based on a story by him and Sean Macaulay and directed by Gervasi, My Dinner With Hervé centers on an unlikely friendship that evolves over one wild night in LA between a struggling journalist and actor Hervé Villechaize, the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf, resulting in life-changing consequences for both.
The film stars Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) as Hervé Villechaize and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) as journalist Danny Tate circa 1993. Executive producing with Gervasi, Zaillian and Dinklage are Richard Middleton, Ross Katz and Jessica de Rothschild, with Garrett Basch and David Ginsberg co-executive producing.
Other previously announced cast members are Andy Garcia, Mireille Enos (The Catch), Oona Chaplin (Taboo) and Harriet Walter (The Crown).
Currently filming, there is no premiere date set at this time. We will have more updates on this exciting project in the near future.
