Harry Potter ‘s Rupert Grint Joins Two Movies


Variety reports that “Harry Potter” star Rupert Grint has landed parts in both The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and CBGB.

In the former, directed by Fredrik Bond, Charlie Countryman (Shia 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?

The film also stars Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Melissa Leo and Til Schweiger.

Alan Rickman (who will be reuniting with his “Harry Potter” co-star) is set to star in Randall Miller’s CBGB as Hilly Kristal who, for more than three decades, owned and operated the famous New York nightclub until a rent dispute forced the establishment to close in 2006. Grint will play Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, who played a prominent role during the club’s rise.
