Opening next week in wide release is Death at a Funeral
, a Hollywood remake of the 2007 British comedy
. The director has changed (Neil LaBute
for Frank Oz
), and the cast has gone from pure white to a more colorful representation
of U.S. demographics, but the actor who plays the guy who had a secret relationship with the dead patriarch remains the same: Peter Dinklage
. Executives at MGM are hopeful the actor's 4' 5" frame is the only connective tissue to the original, with earned just $8M at the box office and was called "strained
" and "lifeless
" by critics.
