Directed by Sacha Gervasi, with a screenplay by Gervasi and story by Gervasi & Sean Macaulay, the film is executive produced by Steven Zaillian, Richard Middleton, Ross Katz, Jessica de Rothschild, Sacha Gervasi and Peter Dinklage. Garrett Basch and David Ginsberg serve as co-executive producers.

With the teaser-trailer already looking promising enough to engage viewers with all their interest in the plot, Dornan looks rather impeccable pulling off the whole clueless journalist persona. Dinklage, as usual, is perfect in the role of the dwarf-actor, strutting about in all his glory. But there's a hint of drama unfolding with Dinklage's announcing in his signature slur and smirk, "I have a little story for you, junior."
