Blag is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and will be featuring some previously unseen photos of Rupert in their special issue. You can pre-order a copy of the magazine at this link and also find out how you (yes, you!) can be included within the magazine's pages. Actors Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are featured on the cover.
There's been a lot of casting announcements recently for the film CBGB. As you may recall, Rupert was cast in the role of punk guitarist Cheetah Chrome, and filming is slated to begin June 25 in Savannah, Georgia. Other actors (in addition to the previously announced Alan Rickman as lead Hilly Kristal) who will be joining the ensemble include: Malin Akerman as Debbie Harry, Stana Katic, Joel David Moore, Johnny Galecki, Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters as Iggy Pop and Mickey Sumner as Patti Smith. The list is long, but you can keep up-to-date at IMDb!
If you live in the Georgia area, you might be interested to know that a call for extras recently went out:
The open casting call is from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. June 12 at the studio, 2315 Louisville Road. Specifically, they're looking for music lovers, musicians, motorcyclists, '70s car owners and people with a '70s "look."
Please note this does not necessarily mean you would get to be in any scenes with Rupert. But for any aspiring actors, music lovers and film buffs, it could be a great opportunity!
We are so excited to share a new musician with you this month! He has performed and recorded a new cover, exclusively for RupertGrint.net!
I discovered Nick Wilson through YouTube, whilst listening to Two Door Cinema Club songs and clicking related links. Nick has covered several Two Door Cinema Club tracks absolutely beautifully, as well as many other cover songs and some of his own original music.
This month, Nick has chosen "She's Electric" by Oasis and covered it just for us!
Check out Nick's beautiful Oasis cover as well as more information about Nick on the link below. Also, if you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe to Nick's YouTube channel!
You might remember our music post earlier in the month in which Rachael Gallman covered Radiohead's "I Will" exclusively for RupertGrint.net! Two of the members of Radiohead were also featured in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. You can learn more about them here, via one of our music vlogs.
Today, we have a Q&A for you with Rachael Gallman, this month's featured artist, in which she discusses how she became interested in music, the types of music that have influenced her, and more. Take a look!
In addition to last week's previously announced casting in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, currently filming in Romania, Variety is reporting that Rupert has also landed a role in the film CBGB alongside Alan Rickman.
"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.
CBGB is also being directed Randall Miller (who also cast Rupert in The Drummer) and is expected to begin shooting this June. Filming for The Drummer has been pushed back to the fall, as previously reported.
Stay tuned to RG.net for the latest on all of Rupert's upcoming projects!
Today is a very special day - it is our opportunity to send our love and best birthday wishes to our very own Steph.
You have simply no idea what a difference she makes to us - and therefore to you - and I have absolutely no idea how it is already a year since we did That Thing for her last birthday!
Have an utterly wonderful day, sweetpea, we love you.
(Updated) Buried within this ScreenDaily article comes news that Rupert Grint has joined the cast of the upcoming action-comedy film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.
The film stars Shia LaBeouf as the titular character, directed by Fredrik Bond, and also stars Melissa Leo and Evan Rachel Wood. Filming begins May 21st in Romania.
Below is the snyopsis for Charlie Countryman. At the moment, we're unsure of which character Rupert will be playing, but we can confirm this is definitely happening!
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?
