Rupert Grint in Red Nose Day Comedy clip!

March 18th, 2011, 9:59pm– As it was announced a while ago, Rupert Grint appeared today in a comedy sketch, which was part of Red Nose Day to raise money on behalf of Comic Relief.
The clip, which was aired on BBC, also stars Tom Felton, Paul McCartney and Keira Knightly, George Michael, Rio Ferdinand , Dermot O’leary , Gordon Brown, Ringo Starr, Justin Bieber, JLS and was written by comedian James Corden.

In the sketch we see the celebrities in the same meeting room arguing over who should go to Africa to make a film about the work of Comic Relief. Rupert offers himself to go and his reaction is hilarious as the others won’t let him go on is own, because they think it would be better to have Emma Watson or Daniel Radcliffe with him. But as we all know Daniel is currently working and Emma studies in the USA, so Tom Felton offers to go with Rupert.

Once again Rupert showed his amazing comedy skills.

You’ll find the clip on youtube here or below:

Rupert Grint To Star in Norwegian Film “Comrade”?

March 10th, 2011, 12:55pm– With the contracts for Eddie the Eagle still waiting to be signed, an article has been published by VG.no which says that Rupert Grint is set to star in the norwegian film production Comrade.

The film, according to the article an anti-war film, will be directed by Petter Næss and, unless my Norwegian is really bad, the article says that filming will start on 28th March!

We are currently awaiting a reply from Rupert’s reps whether this is indeed true. Keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks to Malene and Marite for the hint!

UPDATE: Still no update on Rupert’s involvement in the film, however we’ve discovered a further synopsis of the film and wanted to share it with our readers: Comrade is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has made them enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

UPDATE #2: Rupert is currently in talks to star in this film. Nothing is confirmed yet according to Rupert’s reps.

Rave Reviews For Cherrybomb, Wild Target – Plus Vote For Rupert Grint!

September 14th, 2010, 5:01pm–It may have seemed like rave reviews for Rupert Grint‘s non-Potter movies Cherrybomb and Wild Target stopped coming in, but with the diligence of several fans and staffer Anna‘s translation of French reviews for Wild Target, we have several to bring to you – some praising Rupert so much, you’ll be grinning from ear to ear! You can read some below!

Cherrybomb catches the audience as a clever bit of cinema between drama and thriller. Especially with its first-class trio of young actors in which Grint scintillates as a veteran of acting.
A successful change of image.
Conclusion: Well done teen thriller starring grown up Potter-sidekick Grint”

You can read the rest of the Cherrybomb reviews, starting with Attitude Magazine, here at our Rave Reviews site (which recently got its own domain).

“As much as I’m sad to see one of the great franchises, Harry Potter (with the exception of the first two films, which sucked, rot in hell, Chris Columbus) come to a close, it’s really nice to see Rupert Grint free to work on other projects…”

You can read the rest of this Wild Target review and the 6 other ones – starting with Suite 101 – posted here.
