Rupert Grint Confirmed To Star In Anti-War Film “Comrade”!

March 22nd, 2011, 4:07pm– A few days ago, we posted about Rupert Grint being in talks to star in the Norwegian anti-war film “Comrade”. We have just received confirmation from Rupert’s reps that, YES, he is indeed going to be in the film, which will be directed be Petter Næss.
According to this article, Rupert will play Private Robin Southey Smith, and will be heading over to Norway this Friday with principal filming starting on Monday.
The film will also star German actors Florian Lukas (Goodbye Lenin), David Kross (The Reader) and Norwegaian actor Stig Henrik Hoff.

Of course, we have already updated our Filmography with all information we currently have about Comrade!

This means that Rupert will not be able to attend this Sunday’s Empire Film Awards, but with a new film in the works, we certainly won’t complain! :)

And while we had always believed this to be true, we didn’t want to post anything until we had complete confirmation. We will keep you posted!

I also apologize for the horrible delay. It seems we never received an e-mail. Something with their new system I suppose. You girls know I’d have put this up straight away if I had known. :D I never doubted it, but just wanted it to be 100% true!!

But guys… Rupert is going to be in a movie directed by an Oscar nominated director!!!!

You are serious Tao an oscar nominated director, nice. Personally i don’t like war movie but if it’s Rupert who play in it, it’s sure i will listen the movie. I always had something for mens in military uniforms.

I’m not sure how short he’ll have to keep it. They’re strict in the military and plus it was back in the 40s where guys had short hair to begin with. OMG I hope we get pictures of his hair! I love his luscious locks, but I look forward to seeing him with a different hair style.

Melissa, yes! Petter Naess directed “Elling” which was nominated for a foreign language Oscar!

This is awesome! Knowing my luck, it probably won’t be available here in the states, but I’ll get my hands on it anyway. I can’t wait to see it!

So glad it was confirmed. Excited to hear more about the movie and his character as filming progresses. I agree Brooke. It’s so frustrating with the long wait and fan support for CB and it’s still not available *legally* in the U.S. But I think this movie will have more luck getting distributors and hopefully it’ll make the rounds like DL did here.

What will be the language of the film? There are german, english and norwegian actors!
I really can’t imagine Rupert speaking norwegian, though I hope he does!

Yay! I saw an interview with him and he knew one Norwegian word: Thank you – Takk ;) So cute =D I hoped they would shoot the movie where I’m going on a ski-trip, but no.. :/ But maybe they’ll need to stay at the hotel for one night if there’s a storm! =D
