Rupert Grint to star in Comrade
Although Rupert Grint revealed that he is still coming to terms with the end of the Harry Potter series and his role as Ron Weasley, he has reportedly signed on for a new project, an anti-war film called Comrade. Rupert is set to begin production this week in Norway and will play British Private Robin Southey Smith.
According to Comrade’s director Petter Naess, “There are many talented young actors, but Rupert Grint is very right for the role. I can say just that he’ll play a young, redheaded rebellion.” Comrade tells the tale of English and German pilots who crash in the Norwegian wilderness after a violent battle and must face the brutal winter ahead. Through their struggles to survive, the two enemies forge a bond and become friends.
Sounds fantastic but one question: What will become of Rupert Grint’s hair? Earlier this year, Rupert Grint did say that he was ready for a new ‘do and this might be his chance to shave off his famous red locks.
In other Rupert Grint news, Warner Bros. has released another clip from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Blu-ray, in which Grint chats about the end of Harry Potter. What will Rupert miss the most? “Everything, I suppose. The people, mainly, I think. It’s been a crew of nine that I’ve kind of grown up with. But just the whole routine, really. Just going in everyday into the same place, seeing the same people, and not having that, it’s going to take a while to adjust to.”
