As the Harry Potter franchise drew to a close, its three young stars were striving to pave a way out of being forever typecast as Harry, Hermione, and Ron. Daniel Radcliffe did this by taking daring roles on Broadway, showing his singing chops and, well, more. Then he proved to be a box office draw with 2012's The Woman in Black. For her part, Emma Watson blossomed into a fashion icon and branched out into period dramas with My Week With Marilyn and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. But playing the gawky goofball of the Harry Potter heroes has made things harder for Rupert Grint.
Despite headlining several features throughout Harry Potter's run—including Thunderpants, Driving Lessons and Cherrybomb— Grint hasn't gained any traction as an ingendude in the States. But all is not lost, since Grint has two releases due to hit the U.S. this year. Preceding the Shia LaBeouf-fronted Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman by several months is the World War II drama Into the White, in which he plays a stranded soldier.

Inspired by an incredible true story, Into the White centers on the tale of survival that belongs to a band of English and German soldiers forced to put aside their nationalism once they become stranded in the harsh climates of a remote region of Norwegian wilderness. They must band together to survive, and in doing so they forge an unlikely friendship. David Kross, Stig Henrik Hoff, Florian Lukas, and Lachlan Nieboer co-star; Petter Næss (Elling) directs.
Into the White will be available On Demand March 7th. A limited theatrical release will follow April 12th.
