The clip shows the first meeting between Rupert’s character, Jonny, and Ron Perlman‘s character, Kidman. Check it out:
Partizan also released a mini teaser on their Instagram earlier today – just a few seconds to get us in a Moonwalking mood. You can see that here.
Remember to check back tomorrow – Rupert will be attending the world premiere of Moonwalkers at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. We’ll probably get loads of goodies in the form of interviews and pictures, as well as a bromantic reunion between Rupert and Robert Sheehan on the red carpet. We can’t wait!
UPDATE: A new, small clip featuring Rupert and Robert Sheehan has been released on the Partizan Instagram here!
UPDATE #2: We are being spoiled so much. Yet another new clip has been released today. This snippet gives us more dialogue from Jonny, as well as a great interaction between Rupert and Robert. Check it out HERE!
Rupert will be starring in this film alongside Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy and Hellboy) and former Cherrybomb co-star Robert Sheehan. The film is scheduled start filming in mid-May and until the end of June in Brussels, Belgium.
You can read a synopsis of the film here (we are still unsure if it’s being called Moonwalkers or Moonwalk since both titles are being used around the web):
July 1969. Kidman Tom, a special agent of the CIA, was sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and convince him to film a fake moon landing in case the Apollo mission would fail. It is not Kubrick, but in its place, Jonny, manager of a seedy rock band. Jonny is the bad dream Kidman. Kidman is the nightmare of Jonny. They have no choice but to work together to accomplish their mission, their lives and develop the biggest scam of all time.
We are still awaiting 100% confirmation from Rupert‘s reps but we hope to get that as soon as possible.
How do you like the sound of this project? Are you excited to see Rupert play Jonny? 😀
UPDATE: We have heard from Rupert’s reps, and he is definitely attached to this project and we will hopefully get the 100% confirmation soon, but they are still sorting out the paperwork at the moment. So fingers crossed everybody!
This is very exciting news and we definitely need to keep our fingers crossed. We have just heard back from Rupert‘s representatives, and although they are not ready to make any confirmation on the news, they do say that he is in talks to star in the play.
The Jez Butterworth play has previously been adapted for the stage as well as the cinema, and although we don’t know yet which character Rupert is being considered for, the play itself sounds very challenging and intriguing:
The drama is set in a lowlife club in Soho in 1958 and focuses on a handsome rock singer with star potential who gets caught up in uncouth goings-on involving a gangster, club owner and band manager.
Fantastic shoot this morning with the beautiful Helen McCory & charming Rupert Grint!
Rupert‘s representatives have told us that this was a charity photoshoot and that we can expect the pictures to be out around October. We can’t wait to see them!
In other event news several video interviews have appeared. Two of them are random questions asked to celebrities including if Rupert still wears velcro on his shoes and if he likes X-Factor or Big Brother better. You can watch those here and here. Also Absolute Radio conducted an interview with Rupert where he discusses what bands he has seen, which ones he’s looking forward to, Harry Potter, Comrade (we learn a bit about Robert Southy Smith!) and Robbie Sheehan makes an entrance! You can watch that here.
Last, but not least, we have HQ photos of Rupert at Stardust Diner. These were taken while he was promoting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and around the time he went to see Daniel Radcliffe in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. You can view these awesome photos here.
