Rupert Grint to star in “Moonwalkers” Film!

OtherMovieNewsIcon2April 11th, 2014, 6:47pm– silenis-media-audiovisuel-cinéma-moonwalk-dantoine-bardou-jacquet Rumours have been buzzing for weeks that Rupert Grint was set to star in the movie Moonwalkers – and now we are almost as certain as can be since deadline.com (a very reliable source) is reporting it: Rupert will be playing the role of Jonny in the film directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet.

Rupert will be starring in this film alongside Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy and Hellboy) and former Cherrybomb co-star Robert Sheehan. The film is scheduled start filming in mid-May and until the end of June in Brussels, Belgium.

You can read a synopsis of the film here (we are still unsure if it’s being called Moonwalkers or Moonwalk since both titles are being used around the web):

July 1969. Kidman Tom, a special agent of the CIA, was sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and convince him to film a fake moon landing in case the Apollo mission would fail. It is not Kubrick, but in its place, Jonny, manager of a seedy rock band. Jonny is the bad dream Kidman. Kidman is the nightmare of Jonny. They have no choice but to work together to accomplish their mission, their lives and develop the biggest scam of all time.

We are still awaiting 100% confirmation from Rupert‘s reps but we hope to get that as soon as possible.

How do you like the sound of this project? Are you excited to see Rupert play Jonny? :D

UPDATE: We have heard from Rupert’s reps, and he is definitely attached to this project and we will hopefully get the 100% confirmation soon, but they are still sorting out the paperwork at the moment. So fingers crossed everybody!

Rupert Grint in Talks to Make West End Debut in “Mojo”!

OtherMovieNewsIcon2July 5th, 2013, 1:48pm– MojoCover The internet has been buzzing since last night when The Daily Mail published an article about Rupert Grint being in talks to make his theatre debut in the West End production of Mojo. The news spread quickly, especially since the article states that Rupert already took part in a reading with director Ian Rickson and actors Ben Whishaw, Daniel Mays and Rupert’s former Cherrybomb costar Robert Sheehan.

This is very exciting news and we definitely need to keep our fingers crossed. We have just heard back from Rupert‘s representatives, and although they are not ready to make any confirmation on the news, they do say that he is in talks to star in the play.

The Jez Butterworth play has previously been adapted for the stage as well as the cinema, and although we don’t know yet which character Rupert is being considered for, the play itself sounds very challenging and intriguing:

The drama is set in a lowlife club in Soho in 1958 and focuses on a handsome rock singer with star potential who gets caught up in uncouth goings-on involving a gangster, club owner and band manager.

UPDATE: Today, photographer Charlie Gray posted this very interesting tweet:

Fantastic shoot this morning with the beautiful Helen McCory & charming Rupert Grint!

Rupert‘s representatives have told us that this was a charity photoshoot and that we can expect the pictures to be out around October. We can’t wait to see them!

Rupert Grint Graces The Cover Of Lad Magazine!

October 24th, 2010, 7:37pm–To continue promotion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Rupert Grint has been featured on the cover of Lad Magazine. Rupert has been featured in the magazine on several occasions, but this is the first time he has graced the cover! Rupert is featured on the December 2010 issue with a picture from Blag Magazine which also has another Blag picture for the article. Speaking of the article, it’s really quite a good read! Lad Magazine gushes over Rupert’s body, and Rupert himself laughs it off saying it must be all the ping pong as he’s “quite lazy”. We also learn that Rupert not only owns an ice cream van and a hovercraft, but a VW van! Who knew?

Other parts of the interview talk about the end of Harry Potter, his obsession with ping pong, future film roles (though he only talks about weird roles he’s been offered), and how he believes he’ll always be known as “the ginger one from Harry Potter”.

We couldn’t agree more with Lad Magazine… we’re firmly on the “red(head) team” as well! Click here to view the scans and to read the interview!

Don’t forget you can pre-order your Deathly Hallows through us via Fandango. Just click on the banner on the left hand side!
