Rupert Grint Has One Sexy Weekend

Rupert Grint has been right there with Daniel Radcliffe in trying to separate himself from his Harry Potter persona, taking on roles in independent movies like Driving Lessons. Now he’s signed on for yet another indie movie, which proves to show him doing things that would definitely get you kicked out of Hogwarts.

He’ll star along with two unknown actors in Cherry Bomb, according to PR Inside. The story sounds a little familiar, as well as a little salacious: Grint and Robert Sheehan will star as two young best friends who compete for the affections of a troubled girl (Kimberly Nixon). According to the article, the trio embarks “a wild weekend of drink, drugs, shop-lifting and stealing cars. But what starts out as a game turns deadly serious when the three discover that they can’t get off the wild ride they’ve set in motion.” Damn, love really is complicated, isn’t it?

Grint’s performance in Driving Lessons was received fairly well a few years ago, so this might be another chance for him to establish a career outside of the Harry Potter franchise. Or, you know, it could be another independent movie you never see, even with your raging Ron Weasley crush.
