Written by 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 L.A. between a struggling journalist, Danny Tate (Dornan) and actor Hervé Villechaize (Dinklage), the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf, resulting in life-changing consequences for both.

Gervasi, Zaillian and Dinklage will be executive producing with Richard Middleton, Ross Katz and Jessica de Rothschild. Garrett Basch and David Ginsberg will be co-executive producing.

Gervasi was also a journalist, conducted his last interview with Villechaize– best known for his roles as evil henchman Nick Back in the 1974 James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun, and as Mr. Roarke’s assistant Tattoo in the TV series Fantasy Island, shortly after Villechaize committed suicide in 1993 at the age of 50. In the extensive interview, Villechaize shared the story of his tumultuous life and career.

Gervasi said years ago:

“Hervé wasn’t just a pop culture icon; he was one of the most charming, cultured and dangerous people I’ve ever met. His is the story of a unique misfit trying to find his place in the world.”

Gervasi and Dinklage have been working on a feature chronicling Villechaize’s last days based on Gervasi’s real-life experiences for almost a decade, with a number of young actors eyeing to play Danny.
