He’ll be joining Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood in The Necessary Death of Charlie CountrymanVariety doesn’t mention what Grint will be up to. The film also stars Melissa Leo, Mads Mikkelsen, and Til Schweiger.
Grint will also reunite with fellow Harry Potter alum Alan Rickman in CBGB, a portrait of the famous New York City music club owned by Hilly Kristal that was the New York birthplace of underground rock ‘n roll and punk. The club featured acts like the Talking Heads, the Ramones and Blondie. Variety reports that Grint will play Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, who played a prominent role during the club’s rise.
Granted, they’re both supporting roles in not-so-huge movies, but the projects sound interesting enough (especially CBGB) and we’re eager to see how Grint settles into his burgeoning film career.
