Rupert Grint to talk about the Harry Potter Phenomenon during Olympic Business Series!

June 29th, 2012, 1:10pm– A new article from Screendaily lists Rupert Grint as one of the speakers at the Creative Content day on July 31 which will highlight the UK industry to global leaders. Rupert will be talking about the Harry Potter phenomenon with producer David Heyman and Josh Berger from Warner Bros. Although this is a closed event for UK and international industry, it is interesting to see how Rupert will help shed light on the UK industry alongside many other prominent and respected people from various branches of creativity.

In other news, both Evan Rachel Wood and writer Matt Drake have tweeted that The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman has officially wrapped. Hopefully this means that more information will become available since it is still unclear who Rupert will play in the film.

While production of CBGB has begun in Savannah, Rupert has not begun work as Cheetah Chrome just yet, and until he arrives on set we can expect him to show up at various events in the UK – The Media Eye tweeted earlier today that Rupert would be attending the Goodwood VIP Party. We have no idea if this is true, but look out for pictures floating around.

Confirmed: Rupert Grint in The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman!

May 19th, 2012, 7:08am– Screendaily.com is reporting that Rupert Grint is attached to the film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. The film will be directed by Fredrik Bond and star names such as Shia Labeouf, Mads Mikkelsen, Melissa Leo, James Buckley, Vincent D’Onofrio and Evan Rachel Wood. The movie will begin filming in Romania on May 21 2012.

Collider.com provides a full synopsis:

Charlie Countryman (LaBeouf) was just a normal guy…until he fell in love with the one girl who will probably get him killed. When Charlie meets the absolutely irresistible Gabi she’s already been claimed by Nigel, an insanely violent crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal. Armed with little more than his wit and naïve charm, Charlie endures one bruising beat down after another to woo Gabi and keep her out of harm’s way. Finally his exploits of blind valor create such a mess that he’s left with only one way out; to save the girl of his dreams, must Charlie Countryman die?

We do not yet know what role Rupert will play in the film, but we will of course update as soon as more information becomes available.
