Rupert Grint Featured on Postman Pat Soundtrack!

PostmanPatIconApril 24th, 2014, 8:06am– 10171816_658917637478926_2794216406912578805_nThere’s just a little under a month until you can catch Rupert Grint‘s lovely voice on the big screen in the UK, and today we have some exciting news about this movie. For a long time, we have been speculating whether or not Rupert would be singing since he is voicing the character of Josh, a boyband star.

And today, the full soundtrack list tells us that Rupert will indeed be singing his very own original song. How exciting! The song is called “Lightning” and will run for 1:06 minute (what a glorious minute indeed!).
The official soundtrack will be out on May 19th and besides Rupert, you can hear some amazing artists such as Ronan Keating, Jessie J, The Wanted, Peter Gabriel and many many more.

The movie will be in cinemas on May 23rd with the London Premiere on May 11th – we are currently awaiting word on whether or not Rupert will attend this premiere.

Rupert Grint to star in “Moonwalkers” Film!

OtherMovieNewsIcon2April 11th, 2014, 6:47pm– silenis-media-audiovisuel-cinéma-moonwalk-dantoine-bardou-jacquet Rumours have been buzzing for weeks that Rupert Grint was set to star in the movie Moonwalkers – and now we are almost as certain as can be since deadline.com (a very reliable source) is reporting it: Rupert will be playing the role of Jonny in the film directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet.

Rupert will be starring in this film alongside Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy and Hellboy) and former Cherrybomb co-star Robert Sheehan. The film is scheduled start filming in mid-May and until the end of June in Brussels, Belgium.

You can read a synopsis of the film here (we are still unsure if it’s being called Moonwalkers or Moonwalk since both titles are being used around the web):

July 1969. Kidman Tom, a special agent of the CIA, was sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and convince him to film a fake moon landing in case the Apollo mission would fail. It is not Kubrick, but in its place, Jonny, manager of a seedy rock band. Jonny is the bad dream Kidman. Kidman is the nightmare of Jonny. They have no choice but to work together to accomplish their mission, their lives and develop the biggest scam of all time.

We are still awaiting 100% confirmation from Rupert‘s reps but we hope to get that as soon as possible.

How do you like the sound of this project? Are you excited to see Rupert play Jonny? :D

UPDATE: We have heard from Rupert’s reps, and he is definitely attached to this project and we will hopefully get the 100% confirmation soon, but they are still sorting out the paperwork at the moment. So fingers crossed everybody!

Rupert had this to say about this great honour:

It was a great pleasure to help Starlight grant Callum’s wish before Christmas and I really look forward to doing more to support this wonderful charity. I have seen first hand just how much of an impact a Starlight Wish can have on a seriously ill child – it really makes a huge difference to them and their family – so I am delighted to become a Starlight Ambassador

Neil Swan, Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, had this to say about Rupert becoming an ambassador:

We are thrilled to welcome Rupert on board as an Ambassador. With his experience of Starlight’s work, popularity with young children and families, great sense of fun and charm, Rupert is perfect for Starlight and we are very excited about working with him.

Tonight, the people behind the film have given in to the many many requests from Rupert‘s fans and have finally released an interview with the man himself.
