Fredrik Bond & James Buckley talk Rupert Grint in a New Interview!

January 30, 2013, 6:27pm– Rupert Grint gets a lot of praise by director Fredrik Bond and co-star James Buckley in a new interview done by collider.com done during the Sundance Film Festival.

Bond: When everybody started working it was like being creative people, all the ‘celebrity’ part of it disappears out the window, it’s about here and now and what we’re working completely. And you know the whole cast that we had was exactly like that. Shia didn’t come with an assistant, Evan didn’t come with an assistant, it was just about the work. It was just getting it, and Mads Mikkelsen the same thing.

Buckley: And Rupert the same thing.

Bond: Rupert as well.

Buckley: I keep forgetting that he’s a mega, mega star.

Bond: Me too!

Buckley: It’s so easy to just forget that. Cause you just talk to him and he’s just so nice and so fun to be around, like you go for a beer with him afterwards and stuff and he’s just again, he’s just a bloke. And then you forget that his films have just smashed every record that exists and that everyone on the planet knows who he is. It was really lucky, it was so great that everyone was on the same page and wanted the same thing.

You can read the rest of the interview in our Press Archives here. It’s a lovely interview and we get a great insight into the filming of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.

The International Premiere of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at Berlinale is just over a week away and it looks to be a great event with Rupert, Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Til Schweiger and Fredrik Bond all attending the premiere. Read all the details here.

The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman: Interviews, Articles and Reviews!

othermoviesJanuary 23st, 2013, 3:19PM –Rupert Grint‘s latest film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman has just celebrated its World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival, with co-stars Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood and James Buckley being present on the red carpet!

In this interview, Shia mentions Rupert and the “best possible cast we could have, and the best picks”:

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.”

(Make sure to read page 2 as well…)

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!

We have also started to assemble reviews about The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman on our Reviews page, which you can find here.
