Rupert Grint Off to Belfast to Make Cherry Bomb

By Fara Kearnes

Rupert Grint is currently working in Belfast on a new film titled ‘Cherrybomb’. According to an article in Northern Ireland Screen, the plot revolves around two friends who battle over a pretty girl.

So the Cherry bomb must refer to the girl – not the ginger-headed Rup? Or maybe since it’s set in Belfast, it’ll have a tragic ending? (Bet on it.)

The plot reveals too much but here goes: “With their exams over, best friends Malachy and Luke are out to have one hell of a summer. However, the arrival of Michelle, a captivating but troubled beauty, tests their friendship to the limit as she encourages the two boys to carry out increasingly dangerous and illegal deeds in the battle for her affections – with fatal consequences.”

Rupert’s co-stars are Robert Sheehan, who has been seen in ‘The Tudors’, and Kimberley Nixon, who appeared in ‘Cranford’ and will soon be seen in ‘Bend it Like Beckham” director Gurinder Chadha’s ‘Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging’. Glen Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa are making their directorial debuts with Cherrybomb.

“At heart Cherrybomb questions our notion of male loyalty and what happens when this bond is tested as female desire and rivalry comes into play. We are thrilled with our casting and look forward to shooting the film in and around Belfast over the coming weeks,” say the co-directors.

Rup will next be seen in ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’.
