The Little Fugitive: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peter Dinklage and Justina Machado are teaming to play husband and wife in an indie remake of the 1953 film The Little Fugitive for helmer Joanna Lipper and producers Frederick Zollo and Nick Paleologos.
In "Fugitive," Machado plays Natalia Morton, a dysfunctional young wife and mother who struggles to hold down two jobs while caring for her sons -- and stay sober -- after her husband (Dinklage) is incarcerated. The story centers on a 7-year-old who runs away to Coney Island and encounters a series of adventures after he erroneously thinks he's killed his own brother.
The remake's cast also includes Brendan Sexton III and Sophie Dahl, as well as various child actors. The film is shooting in New York.
