Rupert Grint Talks Eddie To The BBC!

February 22nd, 2011, 1:22pm–In a new interview with BBC, Rupert Grint talks Michael ‘Eddie’ Edwards and the Eddie The Eagle biopic he’s been attached to star in as the famous skier. Right now we are inquiring with Rupert’s reps on whether the BBC has jumped the gun like so many others or if they are finally moving forward with the film. You can read all about Eddie and Rupert’s comments here. Hopefully this makes it true, but we’ll have to wait for confirmation. Stay tuned!

We’re also working hard on our website and big changes are in store for ICM. So keep checking back because we’re real excited for the changes in store!

UPDATE: We’ve just received word and Rupert is hoping to do the film. However there are
no dates as of yet to start filming so nothing is 100%

We’re 95% sure this means Rupert will be doing Eddie, but we like to be 100% certain. I’m excited. It’ll be nice to have all the main young actors doing something. Rupert, Emma, Dan and even Tom being talked about all at once for different projects is just so awesome. :)

but have they denied it?

They haven’t really denied it, so I’m assuming he got the script and is probably looking at it. But Rupert gets a TON of scripts so don’t take too much on that.

Looks like we’re getting closer and closer to Eddie happening. I was getting worried for awhile there. Hopefully they’ll set them damn dates!

good for him if he’s doing it.

but i hope he does another project this year too as i’m not really interested in the biopic one.

I really hope something like this pans out for Rupert. I feel like he is the most talented of the Harry Potter group and could practically do anything and be great at it. Here is hoping.

Nice, biopic are not my kind of movie but if Rupert is in the movie, it’s sure that i will watch the movie. Eddie seems very funny, for what i see in the interview and he seems to be very different of Rupert who is very zen. But Eddie seems to be on redbull, i saw him make a crazy dance. It’s maybe a good thing for Rups, maybe its gonna give him a little bit more confidence. And i still wait for a haircut, because i read that he said, i’m not sure, that he gonna cut his hair for a movie. For what i see Eddie had really short hair.

Sorry for my english, i speak french normally.

hello girls I love the news that Rupert will make a great movie and I loved to know the news.
Girls do not know if I could help but will see I have a cousin who is a big fan of all taxes Rupert fine until he saw some pictures of the girl with a pink dress and rumors began to surface that he is going or rather that could be an appointment!
could clarify or tell me exactly what the truth about the issue of whether he is dating someone?
My cousin and I would appreciate it very much.
I love the site is great!

So great to see that ‘Eddie’ is getting closer to being a reality.

@isabella: I’m not sure I understand what you are asking, but if you want to know whether Rupert is seeing anyone or has a girlfriend, he did say at the BAFTAS that he has no one for Valentine’s Day because he is single at the moment. But Rupert is an extremely private person, so he may have a girlfriend and choose not to announce it to the world.

I think maybe Isabella was talking about the BAFTA photos. We were discussing that woman too but ended up with the conclusion that she is just someone happening to be there and nothing to be concerned about.

As for the Eddie project I am also excited. I’m running out of Rupert stuffs to watch and really really thirsty for something new. Even if it’s biopic which is not my type. But definitely he’d better do other things too!

I really hope this movie actually happens! this could really jump start Ruperts post-Potter career if it opens wide. I want to see him in something mainstream!
