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.
May 23th, 2012, 4:08pm– Another day, another role for Rupert Grint. We are still not over the excitement from the other day when we got the confirmation that Rupert would be filming The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman right now in Romania.
Now, Variety is reporting that Rupert will take part in yet another film – this time it is the film CBGB helmed by Randall Miller, who is also directing Rupert in The Drummer which will be filmed in the fall.
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.
We are currently awaiting confirmation on Rupert’s involvement in this project.
