Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint joining new M. Night Shyamalan Apple TV show


M. Night Shyamalan is heading to television to make a new series for Apple TV and landed Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.

Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise was the one member of the three young cast members to not take off once the franchise wrapped up.

However, Grint has started to work more on television and it looks like that might be where his career finally takes off.

Grint also has signed on to star alongside John Malkovich in The ABC Murders, based on Agatha Christie’s story. That will air on Amazon Prime and the BBC with Malkovich taking on the iconic role of detective Hercule Poirot.

Back to Grint and M. Night Shyamalan, Deadline reports that the series’ title has yet to be released and there is no official plot revealed yet.

What is known is that it is a psychological thriller from Shyamalan, who has the movie Glass coming out in January, completely the story he began in Unbreakable and Split.

Deadline reports that Grint will portray the younger brother of a woman who hires a young nanny to care for their newborn baby. Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) will play the woman, Dorothy.

Nell Tiger Free (Game of Thrones) will play the nanny, and since this is a psychological thriller, expect her to be more than a little creepy here.

Shyamalan is the executive producer and will direct the first episode for Apple TV. Tony Basgallop (24) will write the series. With Shyamalan involved, expect some interesting twists along the way as well.

This new Shyamalan series is one of many big projects that Apple TV has set up as they try to move into the world of competitive streaming services.
