At the premiere of his most recent production, the TV series Snatch, Bonnie Wright attended with her on-screen brother Rupert Grint. At the after-party in Los Angeles, the actress, 26, who portrayed Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter books and films, posed with Grint, who played her elder brother Ron.
The violent new Crackle series, a prequel to Guy Ritchie’s 2000 film about hustlers who fall into organized crime, starring Grint, 28.
Grint will play Charlie Cavendish, a “posh con guy,” and also serve as executive producer.
Ed Westwick and Dougray Scott of Gossip Girl will also appear in the new series, directed by Nick Renton of The Musketeers.
The TV spin-off will have a different cast of characters and the same name as Ritchie’s 2000 crime caper.
The show will focus on a bunch of young hustlers in their twenties who find a truck full of stolen gold bullion.
StartUp and the second season of The Art of the More are just two of the drama series that Crackle has in the works to expand its repertoire.
Unlike his fellow Potter graduates Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, Grint has been performing on Broadway rather than as a big screen’s mainstay.
