“Harry Potter”, “Twilight” Actors Team Up for New Movie
By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: Last month, Harry Potter actor Tom Felton was reportedly in negotiations to appear in the film In The Rough, which tells the story of a women’s swim team coach who gets an opportunity to build a men’s golf team for her university.
According to a post on Twitter from The Twilight Saga‘s Justin Chon (Eric Yorkie), the paperwork has been finished and both actors are appearing in the film. Chon tweeted on yesterday:
@justinchon: paperwork done. doin a movie called “From the Rough” with @TomFelton, @OfficialMCD and @TheRealTaraji ….let’s do this
The story is inspired by the real-life story of Dr. Catana Sparks, the gold coach at Tennessee State University who was the first female head coach of an NCAA Divison I men’s team. Felton, who is best known to audiences as Harry Potter’s nemesis Draco Malfoy, will play a British recruit named Edward (insert Twilight-related pun here). No word yet on what role Chon will play in the film.
The film also stars Ving Rhames, and Taraji P. Henson will play the character on who the movie is based. Filming is scheduled to begin in New Orleans in October.
