Since his role as a wise wizard in the planetary saga that revealed him, Daniel Radcliffe has multiplied daring projects and astonishing performances, from the whooping stiff in Swiss Army Man to the scissor-handed killer in Guns Akimbo, passing by the musician and comedian Weird Al Yankovic, whom he will play in a biopic that promises to be completely crazy. But it is now on the other side of the camera that the actor wishes to pursue his emancipation. In promotion for his latest film, The Secret of the Lost City, where he plays the eccentric billionaire Abigail Fairfax alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, he told the Empire magazine podcast that he had already written the screenplay for this future project. The latter will deal with the underside of the film industry that the actor, who landed the most coveted role in cinema at the age of 11, knows well. A project he would like to carry out in the years to come, as he explained to Empire: “People always say, ‘Write about what you know.’ But I have a very unrecountable life, so I’m not going to write about that. I found a way to write about something that’s related to the movie industry.” If he didn’t give any additional detail concerning the screenplay, Radcliffe assured not wanting a role in this future film, preferring to concentrate on his new cap of director: “I just want to direct the film, for two reasons – already because I never did that before and that I don’t want to have to think about two things at once. But also, on a more practical level, when you’re directing a film, you have to watch it thousands of times during editing and I don’t I don’t want to see my face so much. So I pass my turn.”The Secret of the Lost City is scheduled for release on April 20.
