Crackle has snatched up Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint.
The actor will headline and executive-produce Snatch, a 10-episode series for the streaming network based on the 2000 movie of the same name.
Grint will be joined by cast member Dougray Scott (Hemlock Grove) and recurring player Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl). The show, which will carry the spirit of the Brad Pitt-Jason Statham film while featuring new characters, revolves around a group of twenty-something hustlers who stumble upon a truckload of stolen gold bullion and are thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.
Grint previously made a foray into TV with CBS’ Super Clyde pilot in 2013.
