The Ukranian festival takes place from July 12-20 and we will keep you updated on when and where the screenings will take place. This news comes right after the announcement that Millenium Entertainment had acquired the US distribution rights for the film.
UPDATE #2: Pictures are slowly starting to emerge from today’s round of golf – Rupert is rocking a new golfing outfit and he’s looking very dapper. We’ll be uploading the pics in our gallery here as they start to trickle in.
June 13, 2013, 11:37pm–Today is day one of the Shooting Stars charity event that Rupert Grint and various other stars will be attending. We have a few MQ pictures (and we’ll have HQ photos soon!) of the Affinity Real Estate Shooting Stars Benefit – Welcome Pairing event here. Don’t forget tomorrow we will see Rupert, along with his on-screen brothers James Phelps and Oliver Phelps and many other stars, will be teeing off and we’ll have all the latest coverage the minute its online.
Meanwhile, MTV posted a great video with True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello giving a guide on how to pronounce celebrity names. Rupert, on the CBGB set, appears twice endorsing the guide. You can view it here.
June 10th, 2013, 4:44pm– More good news for all the US Rupert Grint fans to start this week off. The Hollywood Reporter writes that The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman has been acquired by Millenium Entertainment for its US distribution. The film first premiered at Sundance this year and followed up with a European premiere at the Berlin Film Festival (you can check out our exclusive coverage right here).
Millenium Entertainment CEO, Bill Lee had this to say about the film:
In his theatrical debut, Fredrik Bond’s has created a stylish, action-packed ride that hooks you from the first moments and never lets go. This is a perfect addition to our slate and we expect the film to draw audiences in all windows of release.
The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman is expected to be released later this year, we will update when we know something more specific.
June 5th, 2013, 6:29pm–We have just received word from Rupert Grint‘s reps that he will indeed be at the Affinity Real Estate Shooting Stars Benefit on June 14th. You may remember that a few years back Rupert attended the same benefit with James and Oliver Phelps. (If not, you can see all our HQ images from the event here.) This year’s benefit will raise money for Dementia and Alzheimer’s research. Along with Rupert stars slated to be apart of the benefit are Jesse Metclafe of the TV show Dallas and movie star Luke Wilson as well as, of course, Samuel L. Jackson. Famous sports figures include Lewis Hamilton and more. You can read the full details here where you can also enter a contest to attend! We of course will bring you the very latest so stay tuned!
Don’t forget our fun project: A petition to get Rupert Grint as the next doctor! You can sign it here!
UPDATE: We have uploaded several comic art illustrations that Mark Wheatley did for the Super Clyde pilot. Check them out in the gallery here. We’re still very sad that we won’t get to see this, especially since these look absolutely amazing.
June 6th, 2013, 2:28pm– We are all waiting eagerly for Rupert Grint‘s next project to be announced. And while we wait, we have decided to start an online petition to get Rupert the role as the next Doctor in the iconic show Doctor Who.
Matt Smith has just announced that he is leaving the show at the end of this season, and this means that the creators are looking for the right actor to become the 12th doctor. Several articles have appeared mentioning Rupert as one of the front-runners to take over after Matt Smith.
Our petition is just a fun way for all the fans to show their support and have their voices heard. But who knows? If this petition gets a lot of signatures, it might get noticed by some people who have say in this decision. So SIGN the petition and SPREAD the word – we want as many names as possible on this list.
