Eddie The Eagle Says Rupert Grint Is An Excellent Casting!

A few news stories have surfaced again mentioning Rupert Grint and his involvement with the Eddie The Eagle Edwards biopic, but this new article from the Daily Mail has some slightly new information including a direct quote from Eddie and what he thinks about Rupert being cast to play him in the film!

Indeed, the Eddie The Eagle story could soon be brought to the big screen, starring Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films. ‘He can’t start filming until he is clear of his Harry Potter commitments, and with everything I won’t believe it until it actually happens, but I’m quite excited,’ says Eddie.

‘The script is about more than just laughing at me. It’s looking at what I did, and what it meant. It’s about life as well as the Olympics.

‘Is it all about winning? Of course not. Even today, I always say it was never about medals. I don’t even have my participation medal on display. My gold medal was the taking part, and that will never leave me.’

And it helps, presumably, that Rupert Grint is a genuine heartthrob, almost handsome, in a certain snow-bright light? ‘Oh yes,’ he laughs. ‘That is most excellent casting.’

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: New Interview With Good Evening Norway!

A Norway TV show has posted an interview with Rupert Grint on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In it Rupert discussions a range of topics including the Harry Potter series ending, not really being a fan of school, growing up on film, his friendship with co-star Daniel Radcliffe, hitting puberty, what other projects he has coming up, doing interviews, and hitting the red carpet. You can view the video here. You have to wait for a short advertisement and then it starts. It's just over three minutes long. If anyone can get us a downloadable version we'd really appreciate it!

Thanks to Morgan you can watch it via YouTube here!

Also an article came out saying Rupert attended the Variety Club awards, however we have yet to find any photos to collaborate this claim. We'll keep you posted!

New Cherrybomb Movie Clips.

An acting show-reel on Rupert Grint's Cherrybomb co-star Kimberley Nixon has just been released by vimeo.com and we are lucky that it happens to include a couple of unseen clips from the film! Both scenes are pretty lengthy so if you don't want to be spoiled you've been warned. The first scene begins about a minute and a half into it and both include Malachy! We know many of you have been working so hard on this campaign, so you deserve this! Thank you to the lovely Laura! She also uploaded them for us on youtube. You can view them here!

Laura has also sent us some screen-caps hot off of the press. View in our gallery.

Update: The clips may now be viewed separately here. ;)

Cherrybomb Screened At Italian Film Festival, Receives Great Reviews!

Rupert Grint's film Cherrybomb was screened last month at the 39th Giffoni Film Festival, which took place from 12 to 25th July in Gifonni Valle Piana, near Salerno and Naples (South Italy). The film was shown in the Generation 16 category, and although it didn't win (the award went to the film My Suicide, the same one who beat Cherrybomb at the Berlinale as well), the film received very good reviews. Many thanks to Anna who helped me translate this review by Aldo Spiniello. Here's what he had to say about Rupert:
The pair of directors don’t waste their time trying to demonstrate a strikingly original style, they have faith in the pale face of Rupert Grint (who has finally freed himself from the Harry Potter label), and they content themselves with a few simple solutions, such as the text messages materializing onto the screen, as the sign of an increasingly shorter and more painful communication.

Read the entire translation here. Thanks again Anna!

Also thanks to Laura for sending us this review, posted when Cherrybomb was screened at the Galway Film Festival in Ireland last month:
If you expect Rupert Grint to be somewhat slow and dumb just like he is in the HARRY POTTER films, you will be positively surprised. Grint is capable of being more than a sorcerers apprentice sidekick. In CHERRYBOMB he shows off his sexy and wild side.

Since this review is hosted on the Britspotting Festival website, perhaps this means that Cherrybomb will also be screened there in November! Their feature film selection is still in progress, so we will keep you updated. This is a German festival, taking place in Berlin, so German fans, get ready to see Malachy again!

Oh, and don't forget to read the latest edition of our fanzine Grintastic, and please leave your comments!

UPDATE: I have just added these new reviews to our Cherrybomb Reviews page, so visit it here!
