Daniel Radcliffe to go Undercover in FBI Thriller Imperium
He’s more commonly known for his tribulations as everyone’s favourite boy wizard, but Daniel Radcliffe is proving he’s more than grown up as he is set to undertake the role of an undercover agent seeking out white supremacists in FBI thriller Imperium.
Radcliffe’s character, who is based on real-life cop Michael German, attempts to expose a group of supremacists who are looking build a dirty bomb, by spending years infiltrating various neo-Nazi groups.
This is just the most recent in a hoard of titles that Radcliffe has worked on post-Potter, most notably, in the last year. Most recently, the 26-year-old actor has completed a cameo role in Amy Schumer’s comedy Trainwreck and can be seen next as Igor in Victor Frankenstein, a revisionist take on the classic Romantic novel by Mary Shelley opposite Atonement’s James McAvoy. He also recently wrapped on the BBC’s upcoming drama Game Changer, a TV movie on the creator of Grand Theft Auto to which Radcliffe takes on the protagonist role.
Imperium will be the feature-debut of shorts maker Daniel Ragussis, who worked with German to compose the movie’s script and will see Radcliffe on a trip to Quantico to take a bite out of crime and terrorism. Produced by Ty Walker, Dennis Lee and Simon Taufique, filming is scheduled to begin this autumn with UTA independent film group expected to sell it.
