It's been a while since we've seen Rupert Grint in theaters, but that's about to change. His last film was the indie 'Into The White' in 2012, although he has plenty of films coming up in 2013. His latest film 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman', co-starring Shia LaBeouf, has just been picked up for distribution.
Millennium Entertainment has picked up the US distribution rights to the film, with CAA making the deal. The film first premiered at the latest Sundance film festival, and also played during the Berlin film festival.
Millennium Entertainment CEO spoke about the acquisition, explaining, "In his theatrical debut, Fredrik Bond has created a stylish, action-packed ride that hooks you from the first moments and never lets go. This is a perfect addition to our slate, and we expect the film to draw audiences in all windows of release.”
The film will release later this year, and it's not clear whether they're planning on having the film compete during awards season. In addition to starring Shia Labeouf and Rupert Grint, 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman' also stars Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Aubrey Plaza, James Buckley, and Melissa Leo.
