Crackle is adapting Guy Ritchie’s Snatch into an hour long drama series starring Rupert Grint.
Grint will play the dynamic, frustratingly chaotic and utterly posh Charlie Cavendish, Dougray Scott, will play Vic Hill, with Gossip Girl alum Ed Westwick, who will be a recurring guest star in the role of Sonny Castillo.
Sony’s streaming service will air the show in 2017 and it will consist of 10 episodes. Snatch centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. The boys must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend. The show will feature new characters around a fictionalised account of a real life London heist.
