Grint to voice Foosball character

Rupert Grint will provide his voice for the English language version of Foosball

Rupert Grint has been picked to lead the English-language voice cast of animated 3D film Foosball.

The former Harry Potter star will lend his voice to the lead character of Amadeo in the English version of Juan Jose Campanella's film, which was a blockbuster in its native Argentina, reported Variety.

Amadeo is described as "a shy table soccer genius whose table soccer figures come alive to help him save his local town and win his childhood sweetheart".

A nthony Head and Eva Ponsoby will also voice characters in the new version of the movie, which recently went down a storm at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain.

The English-language version of Foosball is being produced by London-based 369 Production, headed by Victor Glynn and David Burgess.

Glynn said: "Usually, at least in the UK, if you have a foreign film, you'd subtitle. But Foosball has huge potential and is a family film, and kids want films in their own language."

The original Spanish-speaking Foosball will make its debut at the London Film Festival in October, but the English-dubbed version is currently in "advanced production".
