Confirmed: Rupert Grint to Star in Norwegian Film "Comrade"

As we reported a few weeks ago, Rupert Grint was in talks to star in a film called "Comrade." Today, we're thrilled to announce that he is now officially confirmed and will begin filming shortly in Norway!

According to an article published today in Norway, Rupert will be portraying a character called Private Robin Southey Smith, an English Armed Forces pilot from Liverpool. Director Peter Naess has also been quoted describing the character as, "a young, rebellious and redheaded rebel."

An official synopsis of the film is below:

Comrade is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has made them enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

Also set to star in "Comrade" alongside Rupert are actors Florian Lukas ("Goodbye Lenin"), David Kross ("The Reader"), Lachlan Nieboer ("Torchwood"), and Stig Henrik Hoff.
