Rupert Grint confirmed for “Moonwalkers”

We posted back in April that Rupert Grint might have a new project up his sleeve, but now his casting in Moonwalkers has been confirmed by Variety.

Here’s their synopsis of the film:

Set in July 1969,’Moonwalkers’ follows a CIA agent (Ron Perman) who is sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and ask him to shoot a fake moon landing in case the real one fails. Although he’s not able to meet Kubrick, he crosses paths with Jonny (Rupert Grint), the loser manager of a hippie rock band. Together they embark on an ill-fated mission to come up with a film.

George Bermann, the film’s producer, has said of the movie,

Although the movie has a left-of-field plot and is making fun of conspiracy theories, it is not a spoof like ‘Austin Powers.’ The movie is gag-laden, but it’s also a true action film with characters who actually get somewhere.

What do you think – does this sound like something you’d like to see?
