Rob Up for A Royal Role as Prince Harry

Rupert Grint and Robert Pattinson have both been tipped to play Prince Harry in a movie about the British monarch's life.

Director Peter Kosminsky is set to begin casting for biopic The Spare, which will depict the royal's experience losing his mother Princess Diana and serving for the Army in Afghanistan.

The filmmaker is said to be considering British actors Grint and Pattinson for the lead, as well as Pride and Prejudice star Rupert Friend, according to Britain's Daily Star newspaper.

Kosminsky explains, "I feel a sense of compassion for the guy (Prince Harry). His parents break up in the most spectacularly public way, his mother dies in the most tragic and, again, public way and everything is picked over.

"He's a man born to no role. His brother's the heir and Harry's the spare."

The White Oleander filmmaker is refusing to rule out recruiting an American star, adding: "My personal approach as a director is that I read the script and people start to pop into my head."

This is going to be something to looking forward to. I hope Rob would consider the role, but I don't think he will be that keen enough, with more meatier roles on his table to choose from. Is Prince Harry's young life intriguing enough for a full film? Of course, I would love to see Rob as a "real" prince, no Disney prince for me, ok? We do hope to get more developments regarding this deal and promise to update you in every way.
