Since the Harry Potter saga ended, actor Daniel Radcliffe has worked hard to distance himself from the popular character that made him a household name. And the results have been, if anything, fascinating at every turn. Whether it was playing Allen Ginsburg (Kill Your Darlings), an FBI agent undercover in a Neo-Nazi group (Imperium), or a literal dead man (Swiss Army Man), he's not been afraid to smash his child-friendly image to pieces. And now, the once "Chosen One" destined to stop Voldemort has lived long to see himself become the villain...in a new movie that is.
It's been confirmed today that Radcliffe has joined The Lost City of D as one of the villains of the story (It hasn't been confirmed if he is THE villain of the story). The romantic adventure sees Sandra Bullock as a reclusive romance novelist who finds herself stuck on a book tour with her book's cover model (Played by Channing Tatum). However, things go awry when they are both kidnapped and find themselves in a jungle, running for their lives.
In actuality, this is Radcliffe's second villain role, following his appearance as antagonist Walter Mabry in 2016's Now You See Me 2. Though, at first glance of The Lost City of D, the plot sounds oddly familiar for cinephiles...
In addition to Radcliffe's casting, it was also confirmed today that Da’Vine Joy Randolph will be joining the cast in a supporting role. Patti Harrison has also been confirmed beforehand to co-star in the film. The Lost City of D is set up over at Paramount Pictures with Seth Gordon producing. Adam and Aaron Nee are directing from a script by Dana Fox. Stay tuned!
