Post Rupert Grint considering British Olympic ski-jumper biopic (UPDATED)

The Sunday Mirror is reporting that Rupert Grint's first potential project after the end of the Harry Potter series may be a biopic about Olympic jump-skier Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards. The short article can be read here:



SPOILER!!: Large article scan of Rupert's possible project.

Quote:
Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is to play ski-jump legend Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards in a movie.

Rupert, 21, is best known for playing cheeky Ron Weasley. Now he has taken Steve Coogan's place in the film, which tells the story of how plasterer Eddie found fame at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Eddie represented Great Britain in the 70-metre and 90-metre ski jumps... and came last in both.

The geeky red-headed skier was criticised by professional skiers for making a mockery of the sport.

But he became a star around the world and even came ninth in a speed skiing event.
We are currently seeking further information from Rupert's representatives about the project and will update as soon as we receive it.

UPDATE: Rupert's representatives have confirmed to us that he has received the script for this project but he is not currently attached to the production.

Eddie the Eagle! Oh that should be a really funny film, whoever does it.

I must point out though that The Mirror is a tabloid, so it could be a load of codswallop.

If the story is true, is would be intersting to see Rupert do. I remember those Olympics and Eddie skiing. I don't think he made a mockery of the sport. He really wanted to be in the Olympics and be in the competition. Well, we will see what happens with the movie.

True enough which is why it's categorised as a rumour.

that would be very cool! i'd like to see him branching out even more, although he's already done a good deal of work outside of the HP movies.

That guy is funny. Rupert would be perfect for a movie about him but is he too young? *tries to remember 1988* drop twenty years and he still doesn't look like Rupert. but he'd be closer in age. This would be neat if it were a Ben Stiller comedy
