September 18, 2012, 12:53pm– Rolling Stone has published a new article about Rupert Grint‘s upcoming film CBGB where he is co-starring once again with Alan Rickman. The article is full of new information about the film’s shoot and the ongoing editing process that is happening right now.
Director Randall Miller and writer Jody Savin also talk about the dificult casting decisions when the actors have to portray well-known people:
“That’s always a tough creative decision,” Savin said of recruiting actors who embody the spirit of the musicians over relying on straight impersonations. “It was tricky,” Miller added, explaining the filmmakers’ year-long search for actors who not only looked the part, but also played the instruments that corresponded to their characters. “It’s all about just finding the authentic people.”
The article also mentions Rupert specifically and Cheetah Chrome has a nice quote about Rupert‘s portrayal of the Dead Boys guitarist:
Things immediately clicked between actor Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame and guitarist Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, whom the young actor portrays. Though Grint’s English accent initially worried him, Chrome, who has a seven-year-old son and has seen every Harry Potter movie, says his only advice to Grint was to mumble a lot.
“The first day I saw him on-set, he hit it dead-on,” Chrome told Rolling Stone. “He had me down. I’m really glad he’s doing me.” Chrome himself wasn’t left out of the film: he has a cameo as a cranky cab driver who hates punk music.
The film is expected to be released in 2013 – we will keep you updated on any and all news about CBGB. You can read the entire article here which also includes a new still from the film.

Variety describes the film, which is also starring Rupert’s Harry Potter co-star Alan Rickman,and even discloses which role Rupert will play in the film:
“CBGB” stars Alan Rickman as CBGB owner Hilly Kristal and the New York City club’s impact on the underground music scene, highlighting artists like the Talking Heads, the Ramones and Blondie. Grint will play Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, who played a prominent role during the club’s rise.
