Below, you can watch the very first clip released from Adolf the Artist where we see Rupert as August Kubizek (also called Gustl) and Iwan Rheon as Adolf Hitler. It looks very promising!
It’s been a while since we last had news on this project so let’s refresh our memory with the synopsis:
Adolf Hitler is portrayed like never before in this satirical comedy starring Iwan Rheon (Games of Thrones) and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter). It reimagines the megalomaniac dictator as an 18-year-old oddball who dreamt of nothing other than becoming a famous painter. Having failed to get into Vienna’s Academy of Fine Arts, he moves to the Austrian capital. However, not one to let himself go, he soon finds himself irritated by his opium-taking, schnapps swilling fellow artists and their sexual experimentation. Comedic in its approach, this historically-accurate story follows young Hitler, before politics and war, when he was nothing other than a teenager with a temper, strange dress sense and desperate ambition to become an artist.
We have no news on the official release date in the UK (or anywhere else) but we will update as soon as more information becomes available.
And in case you are missing our (almost) daily Snatch updates, you can see new pics of Rupert on set yesterday here.
