Hey guys, Jana here,


Rupert Grint (‘Harry Potter‘) is teaming up with Sony streamer Crackle to executive produce and star in a new series based on the 2000 cult hit ‘Snatch‘. Dougray Scott (‘Mission Impossible 2‘) and Ed Westwick (‘Gossip Girl‘) are also attached to the series as key players while Nick Renton (‘The Musketeers‘) will direct.

The series will carry “the spirit of the setting in the film,” but will be placed in a whole new world with unique characters. The project was inspired by a true event, a heist, in London. We will see a group of young adults caught up in the hustling world who come across a truck load of stolen gold bullion and dive head first into the depths of organized crime. They will soon face rogue cops, mobsters, fighters and all manner of villains as they traverse the tricky waters.

Charlie Cavendish is the name of Grint’s character and he’s described as a frustratingly chaotic, yet thoroughly posh con man. Scott’s character works the con game from inside prison and Westwick is a nightclub owner, Sonny Castillo.

The series rolls production next week to fill their 10 episode first season order all set to debut in 2017. This project is another notch into the belt of Crackle’s growing original series properties.

Movie Quotes

Captain Miller:
I'm a schoolteacher. I teach English composition... in this little town called Adley, Pennsylvania. The last eleven years, I've been at Thomas Alva Edison High School. I was a coach of the baseball team in the springtime. Back home, I tell people what I do for a living and they think well, now that figures. But over here, it's a big, a big mystery. So, I guess I've changed some. Sometimes I wonder if I've changed so much my wife is even going to recognize me, whenever it is that I get back to her. And how I'll ever be able to tell her about days like today. Ah, Ryan. I don't know anything about Ryan. I don't care. The man means nothing to me. It's just a name. But if... You know if going to Rumelle and finding him so that he can go home. If that earns me the right to get back to my wife, then that's my mission.

Captain Miller:
You want to leave? You want to go off and fight the war? All right. All right. I won't stop you. I'll even put in the paperwork. I just know that every man I kill the farther away from home I feel.
