Several articles about the film have been published as well, giving more information about Rupert’s role.
USA Today has published this great article with the following quote from director Fredrik Bond:

“He’s so synonymous with the Harry Potter series, I think that’s why he was so keen to do this,” says Countryman director Fredrik Bond. “He’s dying to be doing different stuff outside of the series and be acknowledged for it. He’s an incredible actor. And it’s so different from what he’s done before. He had an amazing time.”

Several more articles can be found through our Press Page. Please beware of adult themes as Rupert is playing an adult character in this film!

Rupert Grint to Attend Berlin International Film Festival 2013!

January 21, 2013, 5:28am– We have just received word that Rupert Grint will be attending the International Premiere of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at the Berlin International Film Festival. The festival takes place from February 7-17 – the final programme has not yet been released, so it is still unsure when or where the event will take place. We will keep you updated on this as soon as it is announced.

This news comes at the perfect time since The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman is having its world premiere tonight at the Sundance Film Festival – and although Rupert is not attending, we can now look forward to February with new excitement.

While we wait for reviews to become available after tonight’s screening, why don’t you take a walk down memory lane to February 8 2009 where Rupert attended the world premiere of Cherrybomb at Berlinale.

Rupert Grint: The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman Article Round-Up!

January 18, 2013, 10:40am– Rupert Grint‘s latest movie, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, is only three days away from premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. And the good news is that the media world is buzzing with anticipation for the film and seem almost as excited as us.

Entertainment Weekly has just published a brand new interview with Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood where they talk about the film and gives us a great insight into the crazy experience we have in store when watching the film. And our very own Rupert gets an honourable mention from the lovely Evan:

Wood compares the film to 1993 Quentin Tarantino-penned romantic crime thriller True Romance. “It has a vibe of True Romance. It’s a passionate, tender love story surrounded by chaos, violence, and crime,” she says. And, like True Romance, it also has moments of humor. Wood said Rupert Grint’s part in the film helps the actor shed his Harry Potter stigma and added a lightness to the dark movie. “Rupert Grint is amazing in this film. It was such a brilliant idea to cast him. It’s hilarious.”

Wow! You can read the entire article HERE and even see a new image from the film of a bloody Shia LaBeouf. It’s a great read.

Director Fredrik Bond has also been quoted in various articles and his enthusiasm is obvious and almost contagious:
He is quoted in Screendaily as saying: “We shot in the summer in Bucharest over 34 days,” says Bond. “It was the best experience ever.”
And in Variety: “It’s a wild ride, and that’s what was so fun about it, there are very few scripts I read where it’s a real bouncy, dynamic ride.”

We will update more on The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman when more news and reviews will start to appear after its premiere as well as further news regarding its International Premiere at Berlinale.
