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.
