Daniel Radcliffe and Neo-Nazis not something we usually connect with one we called Harry Potter for many years, nor did we think he would be a dead body who constantly farts (Swiss Army Man). For ‘The Boy Who Lived’ his film choices post Hogwarts have been interesting and for his next one Imperium when he takes his next role to the extremes, watch U.S Trailer…
When your an young actor whose grown up in the eyes of the public as one character when that run ends it’s good to branch out and be diverse as possible. Radcliffe has been doing that, we’re looking forward to seeing him as the flatulent corpse. Currently he’s causing magical havoc in Now You See Me 2 but can he shine a little more magic to convince White Supremacists he’s one of ‘brotherhood’?
In Imperium, Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe), a young, idealistic FBI agent, goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group who are planning another attack. The bright up-and-coming analyst must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy. Inspired by real events.
Whatever the final outcome of the diverse range of films he’s starred in Daniel Radcliffe has proven he is a versatile actor. He looks once again deliver something slipping into disturbing intriguing step, new territory and it’s the same for the director Daniel Ragussis who is making his debut feature. This film is based around a script he co-wrote with Michael German who is the real life agent this film is based on giving the film a sense of realism. It doesn’t look like Imperium goes too deep with a focus possibly more on the action but still very reflective.
Imperium is been released in UK by Signature Entertainment (Lionsgate in USA) with a 23rd September release date (USA 19th August). The film also stars Toni Collette, Burn Gorman, Nestor Carbonell, Sam Trammell and Seth Numrich.Powered by Sidelines
