Rupert Grint is to make his stage debut as a pill-popping gangster in a play set in the Soho underworld of the 1950s.

The Harry Potter actor, who played Ron Weasley in the hit films, will appear alongside Downton Abbey's Brendan Coyle, Daniel Mays and Ben Whishaw in a West End revival of Jez Butterworth's award-winning Mojo.

The play, which was first put on at the Royal Court in 1995, is set in a seedy nightclub after the grisly murder of its owner.

The new production will be at the Harold Pinter Theatre later this year, with previews in October.

Butterworth made a film version of Mojo in 1997 starring Pinter, Ian Hart and Aidan Gillen.

Rupert's Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe has appeared in several stage productions since appearing in a 2007 revival of Equus and is currently appearing in the West End in The Cripple Of Inishmaan.
