May 20, 2009, 5:18 AM–Since there are no major Rupert Grint news this morning, allow us to mention here a few recent stories, all of them more-or-less Rupert related.
Cherrybomb: The team behind Rupert’s latest completed film, including the directors Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, and the composer David Holmes, is currently involved with a new project Good Vibrations, documenting the life of Terri Hooley (who masterminded the Northern Irish punk revolution). This article describes Cherrybomb as “the ’sold out, stand out’ local production that starred at this year’s Belfast Film Festival” and notes that “The local success of Cherrybomb - starring Rupert Grint, Kimberley Nixon and Robert Sheehan - has this week seen it ‘explode’ at the Cannes Film Festival - as part of the producers’ bid to sign an international distribution deal.” Sheehan and Holmes were also in Cannes last week, as mentioned here. Speaking of Robert Sheehan, he has just landed a role in a new film I Was Bono’s Doppelganger, documenting the early days of Dublin’s legendary band U2. The film is produced by Mark Huffam’s Generator Entertainment (who also produced Cherrybomb), so read more about this project here.

The Deathly Hallows: First off, CBBC Newsround has a set report from Pembrokeshire — although Rupert is only mentioned, you may want to read the description of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows set here. Also, Emma Watson has updated her official website, to note that they had a great time in Pembrokeshire, and than in two weeks she will be half-done filming her part for the DH! Finally, you may read here about the uniforms that Rupert and his co-stars are wearing in the HP films.
