Rupert Grint Joins the Cast of 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman'

(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?
