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

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!

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
