Rupert Grint doesn't have the typical post-Potter career of his cast mates, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. His career has instead taken on quite an eclectic turn, with films of wildly different genres, television shows, and indie films all thrown in within the past three years.
He has four different films release in 2013, and although none of them were major box office successes the way the Potter films were, they still managed to prove Grint's acting range. There was Charlie Countryman, the indie film with Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood. Then, there was voice role of 'Underdogs', along with playing a character named Cheetah Chrome in 'CBGB', alongside Alan Rickman, no less.
Then, he had the TV pilot 'Super Clyde', which was unfortunately not picked up. Never fear, Rupert fans, he still has plenty more to offer. The first trailer for 'Postman Pat' has been released, and has quickly gone viral. And now, Deadline is announcing that Grint will be starring in the indie 'Moonwalkers' alongside Sons of Anarchy and Hellboy star Ron Perlman and Mortal Instruments star Robert Sheehan.
The synopsis that's bring thrown around the web states, "July 1969. Kidman Tom, a special agent of the CIA, was sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and convince him to film a fake moon landing in case the Apollo mission would fail. It is not Kubrick, but in its place, Jonny, manager of a seedy rock band. Jonny is the bad dream Kidman. Kidman is the nightmare of Jonny. They have no choice but to work together to accomplish their mission, their lives and develop the biggest scam of all time."
We don't know too much else about the film, but it will be directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet and is officially set to begin filming in Brussels next month.
