Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promoted at Cannes!

Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promoted at Cannes!

May 18, 2009, 6:36PM–We recently reported that Wild Target starring Rupert Grint, Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt has landed a distribution deal with U.K. exhib chain Vue Entertainment. Now “IOM Today” is reporting that Isle of Man Film representatives have attended the Cannes Film Festival to promote Manx films!

Excerpt: Three films will also be promoted to distributors – Heartless, directed by Philip Radley, and Wild Target, a hitman caper starring Bill Nighy and Helena Bonham Carter – which were both filmed last year.

‘The whole of the film production industry is going through a difficult time so it’s important we have a really active presence.’Β  It’s a very prestigious event and it has been crucial in establishing and maintaining links with film producers and distributors and helped cement our position as a leading independent film financier in the British Isles and therefore Europe,’ he explained.

The North American Distribution process for Wild Target is being handled by Cinetic Media.

I saw that at work today but I couldn’t comment to them to fix it because I was at work.

The CB Petition link isn’t working.

May 18th, 2009 at 7:03 PM

I know it’s funny, I think people are in denial that she is not in it or something. I mean you’d think they would know by now. OH well yay for WT and CB for CANNES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 18th, 2009 at 7:03 PM

Double click, I had the same problem but it is working for me. it might be our server. :(

Also the banner on the top right that Laura made takes you to the petitions as well.

May 18th, 2009 at 7:04 PM

I hope something comes out of it. For both WT AND CB!!

May 18th, 2009 at 7:16 PM

I find the lack of Tony pics disturbing.

May 18th, 2009 at 7:18 PM

What worked was the petition Neither the banner nor the petition link work. So it might be a server problem.

May 18th, 2009 at 7:19 PM

That’s strange Suz cuz all the links work for me.

May 18th, 2009 at 7:25 PM

Yeah, everything works for me except the “click here to sign the petitons” link. Gives me an error.

CinemaNX, some promo stills from WT would be quite awesome, yes.
At least some Tony as my early graduation gift (I graduate next week.)

I want more Tony, as you prob noticed.

Rupert as Tony could be on cans of spinach. “See what happens when you eat your spinach?!”

May 18th, 2009 at 8:10 PM

May 18th, 2009 at 8:13 PM

But what if Rupert appeared each time you eat your can of spinach? Would you eat it then? Man I think I want to go buy some now.

May 18th, 2009 at 8:16 PM

Hey guys

I know this is unrelated to this news post, but I thought some of you might be interested to know this anyway.

I just found out on Google News that Rupert’s “Cherrybomb” co-star Robert Sheehan (Luke) is set to star in a new film called “I Was Bono’s Doppleganger”, a comedy based on the autobiography of music journalist Neil McCormick. Rob co-stars with Charlie Cox (Stardust, Casanova) and will be directed by Nick Hamm (The Hole). It is likely to be shot in Dublin, Belfast and London in August.

More info can be found at these links (one of these includes a new picture of Rob):

These articles also state that Robert has recently wrapped filming on “Season of the Witch”, co-starring with Nicholas Cage.

It’s great news for him (Rob), isn’t it?

As I said, I know this isn’t strictly related to this news post, but I thought y’all would like to know anyway.

I hope this is OK with mods.

Hahaha that is total awesomesauce!
