Rupert Grint To Star in Norwegian Film “Comrade”?

Rupert Grint To Star in Norwegian Film “Comrade”?March 10th, 2011, 12:55pm– With the contracts for Eddie the Eagle still waiting to be signed, an article has been published by which says that Rupert Grint is set to star in the norwegian film production Comrade.

The film, according to the article an anti-war film, will be directed by Petter Næss and, unless my Norwegian is really bad, the article says that filming will start on 28th March!

We are currently awaiting a reply from Rupert’s reps whether this is indeed true. Keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks to Malene and Marite for the hint!

UPDATE: Still no update on Rupert’s involvement in the film, however we’ve discovered a further synopsis of the film and wanted to share it with our readers: Comrade is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has made them enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

UPDATE #2: Rupert is currently in talks to star in this film. Nothing is confirmed yet according to Rupert’s reps.

Got my fingers crossed! Oh, and if I’m looking up the right director, this guy is with Rupert’s agency in the US. So it does make sense… but I don’t want to get too excited. lol

March 10th, 2011 at 2:03 PM

Ohhhhh god, jeeez buggeriing shooot! This sound very exciting. David Kross and Rupert, god, what would I dooooo!!!

I saw that Masha. That was something that popped out at me… “Other projects…” WEEE!

March 10th, 2011 at 2:10 PM

Too cool. Hopefully it’s true. I’ve had my fingers crossed that another project would pop up soon!

March 10th, 2011 at 2:47 PM

I too hope this pans out along with Eddie and as said, “OTHER,” things. Sounds very interesting and full of good actors too.

This sounds like an interesting film, not a typical shoot and blow everyone up war film. It seems like the film talks about the personal effects of war, and is based more about the emotion of the characters, not to mention that the cast is fantastic. Actually, Comrade is similar to The Way Home and that film is so great. I really hope that this is true. So filming starts very soon. I’m getting excited!

It really does sound interesting and different. I’m not big into war movies, but I like anything with a good storyline. 🙂 And of course I’ll see any Rupert movie! lol

March 10th, 2011 at 5:21 PM

Weeeeeeee. So happy with that news. Let’s hope it is more than a rumor.

I also lovelovelove the two German actors. The oldest film with Florian Lukas that I remember is from 2001 (yes, I did see Mädchen Mädchen lol).
War films can be very good, but Hollywood has a tendency to screw them up. European films dealing with that topic are usually quite good.

March 10th, 2011 at 5:44 PM

This really is a surprise 😛 I hope it’s true 😀 It looks like it’s such a great project. I love the fact that it’s a Norwegian film, and not a blockbuster Hollywoody flick. Please, please, please, let this be true!! I hope Rupert’s reps confirm it as soon as possible. I am really really excited!! Can’t wait to know more about this!! ^^

March 10th, 2011 at 6:09 PM

Check out the synopsis added. Sounds even more intriguing.

March 10th, 2011 at 6:10 PM

exacly, im fed up with american blockbusters movies….

March 10th, 2011 at 6:44 PM

This sounds just like what I had hoped he would do. I’m really looking forward to Eddie the Eagle, but I really hope this is true!!

March 10th, 2011 at 6:59 PM

Rupert’s in talks right now. But keep in mind that Rupert’s reps can’t “confirm” anything unless Rupert has signed on the dotted line. If the deadline is the end of this month, then it’s probably just a matter of time before the completely confirm it.

aww I liked saving private ryan lol

Sounds really interesting, i wish it’s true but we have to wait. Rupert as a soldier. Mmm.

The German bomber pilot LEUTNANT HORST SCHOPIS is a highly educated,
fifth generation Military Officer. A good man caught on the wrong side of the war.

The Navigator SERGEANT KARL-HEINZ STRUNK is a gentle giant, with a
surprisingly wry sense of humor.

The Mechanic CORPORAL JOSEF AUCHTOR is a hardcore, dedicated Nazi,
who grew up in an orphanage believing that Hitler was his father.

British Royal Air Force Fighter Pilot CAPTAIN RICHARD THOMAS
PARTRIDGE is a British upper class gentleman. Never having been tested,
Partridge finds that, when pushed, he has more strength than he thought.

British Royal Navy Gunner PRIVATE ROBIN SOUTHEY SMITH is a true wise
guy, pulled straight from the streets of Liverpool. Smith’s obnoxious behavior
partially obscures the fact that, deep down, he’s a good man and a dedicated

Who do you think Rupert will play if he sign. I said Karl-Heinz Strunk, because of his sense of humour.

By the way I have a question, it is true that the trailer is for friday, i read that on tumblr.

March 10th, 2011 at 8:59 PM

I think Rupert would most likely play one of the British soldiers. In the article said that the character would plays is a rebel so I’m guessing the Navy Gunner.

DH2 trailer? We haven’t heard anything so most likely that is a rumor.
