Deadline is reporting that actor Daniel Radcliffe is joining the FBI thriller Imperium from Atomic Features and Tycor International Film Company.
Based on the experiences of FBI undercover agent Michael German, the former “Harry Potter” will play a young FBI agent who goes undercover to stop white supremacists planning a terrorist act. German spent years inside neo-Nazi and militia groups trying to stay ahead of them.
It will be the directorial debut by short filmmaker Daniel Ragussis based on a screenplay he wrote with German. Ty Walker, Dennis Lee and Simon Taufique are producing the movie with plans to start shooting in the fall.
Radcliffe will next be seen opposite James McAvoy in 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein, which arrives on November 25, and he’s currently filming the indie comedy Swiss Army Man with Paul Dano. After that, he’s playing Rockstar Games president Sam Houser for the BBC2 film Game Changer about the creation of “Grand Theft Auto.”
