Wild Target Co-Star Martin Freeman Enjoyed Working With Rupert Grint!

November 27th, 2009, 12:13 PM--While promoting his new film, Nativity, Rupert Grint's Wild Target co-Star Martin Freeman briefly mentioned Wild Target in an interview with BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat. While no specific details were given, here's what he had to say...

Finally, can you tell us a bit more about the movie you filmed with Rupert Grint?

Yes, it's called Wild Target. We filmed that this time last year. I don't know about a release date on that.
Rupert Grint's in it, Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy, Rupert Everett, Eileen Atkins. It's very good and it's directed by Jonathan Lynn who was behind things like Yes Minister and Yes, Prime Minister.
I've not seen it yet but I had good fun doing it. I hope it's good.

You can read the complete article here, and the coverage by Digital Spy, which also mentions our Cherrybomb Campaign, here!.

In addition, a much clearer HD version of the video featuring Rupert and his Wild Target castmates filming at the Andaz Hotel can be seen via Youtube here!

Seeing Rupert and his co-stars mentioning Wild Target in interviews for other projects, and knowing that the film has numerous distribution deals in the works, makes us hopeful that a release date won't be too far away!

Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promoted at Cannes!

May 18, 2009, 6:36PM–We recently reported that Wild Target starring Rupert Grint, Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt has landed a distribution deal with U.K. exhib chain Vue Entertainment. Now “IOM Today” is reporting that Isle of Man Film representatives have attended the Cannes Film Festival to promote Manx films!

Excerpt: Three films will also be promoted to distributors – Heartless, directed by Philip Radley, and Wild Target, a hitman caper starring Bill Nighy and Helena Bonham Carter – which were both filmed last year.

‘The whole of the film production industry is going through a difficult time so it’s important we have a really active presence.’  It’s a very prestigious event and it has been crucial in establishing and maintaining links with film producers and distributors and helped cement our position as a leading independent film financier in the British Isles and therefore Europe,’ he explained.

The North American Distribution process for Wild Target is being handled by Cinetic Media.
