Rupert Grint Filming TV Pilot for NBC, New Moonwalkers Promos
Posted by Megs

On this Halloween morning let’s take a look at some Rupert Grint news from the past week. First, Rupert will be filming a pilot for NBC. The pilot is for a comic book hero and, according to Deadline, was developed for Rupert because he is a big comic book fan.  A short description of the untitled show is as follows:

The British actor would star as Rupert, a low-level New York office drone obsessed with Imperial City, a comic book series his father created before his death. Rupert has spent his whole life believing he owned all nine issues. But when a mysterious comic book collector reveals the existence of a tenth issue, Rupert discovers that the world of Imperial City is real, and he is the one person who can save it.

Fans will recall that Rupert also filmed a pilot for a superhero show, Super Clyde on CBS, a couple years ago which didn’t go into production. Hopefully this series is picked up after the pilot is created. We will of course keep you updated on the progress!

Also, thanks to Rupert-Grint.us we have a new clip and a trailer from Rupert’s upcoming film, Moonwalkers.

Rupert Grint’s ‘Moonwalkers’ Acquired for USA Release
Posted by Megs

After a successful showing at this years SXSW it has been announced that Rupert Grint’s Moonwalkers has been picked up for release in the United States. Alchemy has bought the rights to the film, written by Dean Craig. A description of the film may be read below:

What if Apollo 11 never actually made it? What if, in reality, Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US administration? This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent (Ron Perlman a.k.a. Hellboy) will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with Rupert Grint’s lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.

The film will be showing again at SXSW on Tuesday and Thursday.

Rupert Grint Not Returning for Extended Run of ‘It’s Only a Play’
Posted by Megs

A couple weeks ago we reported that Rupert Grint’s Broadway show, It’s Only a Play, would be extending it’s run through March 29th. Unfortunately, it was revealed today that Rupert (as well as Megan Mullally and Nathan LAne) will not be returning after the original end date of January 4th. Rupert’s replacement has not yet been announced, but Martin Short will be taking over for Nathan Lane.

In It’s Only A Play, it’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his fledgling producer (Megan Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Stockard Channing), his wunderkind director (Rupert Grint), an infamous drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan. It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender — and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
