For an adaptation of Guy Ritchie's movie Snatch, Sony's streaming network, Crackle, is developing a series of the same name with Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint set to executive producer and star.
Eyeing a 2017 debut, the upcoming show will be an hour-long scripted drama, and will consist of 10 episodes, according to Variety. Grint will be portraying the "dynamic, frustratingly chaotic and utterly posh Charlie Cavendish." Other actors tapped to star in the series include Dougray Scott, and Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick. Scott will take on the role of Vic Hill with Westwick slated for the recurring guest star role of Sonny Castillo. The series will be directed by The Musketeers' Nick Renton, and will begin production in Manchester, England next week.
While the series will borrow from the vibe of the 2000 film, there will be new all new characters introduced to the story. The plot for the show will be based around a real life heist in London with a group of mid-twenties hustlers being hurled into the world of organized crime after stumbling upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion. The boys will encounter "rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend."
Also serving as executive producer on the show is Alex De Rakoff with Helen Flint producing from Little Island Productions.
