- THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN
Variety reports that "Harry Potter" star Rupert Grint has landed a role in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.
Directed by Fredrik Bond, Charlie Countryman (Shia LaBeouf) was just a normal guy... until he fell in love with the one girl who will probably get him killed. When Charlie meets the absolutely irresistible Gabi she’s already been claimed by Nigel, an insanely violent crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal. Armed with little more than his wit and naïve charm, Charlie endures one bruising beat down after another to woo Gabi and keep her out of harm's way. Finally his exploits of blind valor create such a mess that he's left with only one way out; to save the girl of his dreams, must Charlie Countryman die?
The film also stars Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Melissa Leo and Til Schweiger.
Grint has also managed to get a role in CBGB.
