May 27, 2010, 12:48 pm—A new interview has just been published with Daragh Carville, screenwriter of Rupert Grint’s film Cherrybomb!
He talks about the development of the storyline for the film and the production with Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, as well as the casting process and his opinion of Rupert as Malachy:
I didn’t actually think we’d get him but he came in to read and it was clear very quickly that he was perfect for the part. He’s a terrific actor and there’s something very warm and winning and accessible about him that was just ideal for Malachy. Now I genuinely can’t think of anyone else in that part. He nailed it.
Daragh also mentions the „totally unexpected“ support of Rupert’s fans (and goes into detail) – and describes the impact Rupert had on the film:
So ultimately it would be true to say that Rupert’s given the film a profile it wouldn’t otherwise have had. He’s a star: that’s what stars do.

And on sadder news, we have been informed that the Czech release for Cherrybomb has been pushed back – to the 7 October 2010. 🙁 Sorry for this guys, but look at the bright side: You will get to see the film on the big screen, and maybe Rupert will be free for some additional promotion by that time!
