Tom is confirmed to be starring in Tony Kaye’s Attachment, supposedly a “sexual thriller”, opposite Sharon Stone! From ComingSoon.net:

Tom Felton will be starring opposite Sharon Stone in Tony Kaye’s upcoming sexual thriller, Attachment, the director told ComingSoon.net today.

The film, written by Christopher Denham, stars Stone as a married woman and teacher who shares a night of infidelity with one of her students. Afterward, the student begins to stalk her and her family as he dates her own teenage daughter.

Felton, best known for the “Harry Potter” series, will play the student antagonist and the plan is to begin production in the next couple of months.

Tom has also been linked with another film, Fangs of War, which has been called “Inglorious Basterds” meets “Dracula”.

Rupert meanwhile has reportedly joined The Drummer, a star-studded Beach Boys biopic, along with young actress Chloe Moretz. This is what the Hollywood Reporter has to say:

Chloë Grace Moretz and Rupert Grint have joined the all-star cast of The Drummer, the biopic of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson from directing and writing duo Randall Miller and Jody Savin

Aaron Eckhart is portraying Wilson while Vera Farmiga is playing Fleetwood Mac member and Wilson’s lover Christine McVie in the project tackling the last six years of Wilson’s life (he died in 1983), when the singer-songwriter released his acclaimed solo album Pacific Ocean Blue.

Moretz will play Wilson’s daughter, Jennifer Wilson, who was there while the musician went through the darkest days of his life. Grint will portray Stan Shapiro, the wide-eyed William Morris mailroom intern who became a close friend and confidante to the man.

The film will begin shooting June 15 in locations in California and Savannah, Georgia.
