Daniel Radcliffe has been making some really interesting choices as an actor since finishing his time as the Boy Who Lived and his latest is What If, a genuinely sweet and funny rom-com co-starring Zoe Kazan.
Radcliffe was in town to talk about the film and while he was there we took the opportunity to ask him about his future projects. Or, more specifically, about the movie he would make if he could do absolutely anything.
The 25 year old, who already has a massive franchice behind him, chose a small indie project as his dream, specifically one that would see him reunite with Kill Your Darlings co-star Dane DeHaan:
"At the moment the project I really want to do is called College Republicans. That’s hopefully with myself and Dane DeHaan and John Krokidas who did Kill Your Darlings, we’d all get to work together again. At the moment that’s my dream project because it’s been up and down for a few years now. So at the moment that’s my dream!"
The project has been rumoured for quite a while and is set in 1973 and based on true events. DeHaan would play Karl Rove - an aspiring politician who takes advice from Radcliffe's Lee Atwater while trying to drum up money for his campaign. The pair will go on a road trip to make some cash, and have some buddy comedy moments along the way.
The script by Wes Jones made the Black List in 2010 and its currently in development and looking for financing. Krokidas will direct (making his second feature film) and fans will be looking forward to seeing this acting pair-up on screen again. Though possibly with a little less sexual tension.
I have to wonder though, with Radcliffe worth an estimated $60 million would he not be in a position to finance a relatively low budget indie out of his own pocket?
