Daniel Radcliffe has been cast in Beast of Burden, an original film where he willl play a drug smuggler out on his last job. The film is set to be directed by Swedish film maker Jesper Ganslandt and the script was written by Adam Hoelzel.
Paul Schiff is producing along with Michael Diamond of MGMT Entertainment. Chad Moore and Jeff Elliott of Green-Light also will produce. Green-Light is handling foreign sales for the film and were also the team behind Imperium.
Filming is scheduled to start 22 November 2016 in Savannah, GA and here’s the synopsis:
He’s spent most of his life keeping secrets – from the feds, to the cartel, even from his wife, Julie. Now, Sean Haggerty, piloting a small aircraft carrying 55 lbs of cocaine across the boarder, is ready to call it quits. He just has to figure out how to survive what’s waiting for him when he lands.
Happy Sunday, lovely readers!
The most exciting piece of news this week: Dan has been cast as Sean Haggerty in Beast of Burden, an action-thriller about a drug smuggler who is ready to quit his less-than-legal line of work – but only after he’s smuggled 55 pounds of cocaine across the border in a small aircraft. Beast of Burden is scheduled to start filming late November in Savannah, GA, and will be directed by Jesper Ganslandt from Adam Hoelzel’s script.
Dan also posted on his G+ about Circus Kid, a documentary by Lorenzo Pisoni (Dan’s friend, and Equus co-star) about his life growing up as part of a circus family. Check out Dan’s post for more information:

Hello loves – apologies for the lack of round-ups recently, but there really hasn’t been much to report. There isn’t much to report this weekend either, but it’s been three weeks so we thought we’d pretend to make an effort.
Imperium is set for limited theatrical and VoD release on 18th August in the US, and you can see new stills here. Dan is taking part in an AOL Build talk Monday 9th August to promote the film, and his pre-recorded promotional appearance on The View will Air 10th August. Imperium is scheduled for a UK release 23rd September.
Swiss Army Man finally has a UK release date – 30th September. About bloody time. No word yet on whether or not Manny will tour the UK.
You can read through assorted Privacy bits and bobs on our Twitter. Privacy is just about to begin its final week of performances, after which Dan will be released back in to the wild and will presumably be bored and looking for something to keep him busy … fingers crossed we’ll have a new project announcement in the next few weeks! Though he can have a holiday first if he’d like.
So, that’s it! We’ll see you next Sunday. Maybe. ❤
Lionsgate Premiere have released new stills from Daniel Radcliffe’s next film, Imperium. Directed by Daniel Ragussis, Dan stars as FBI agent Nate Foster who goes undercover to try to bring down a white supremicist group.
You can also read the press notes over on the Lionsgate Publicity website.
Things to look out for: Dan will take part in a TimesTalk in NYC on 8 August to talk about Imperium with Daniel Ragussis. Also on Monday you can watch the Live Stream of Dan being interviewed with Daniel Ragussis and Michael German for AOL Build. Dan will also appear on The View (pre-taped a couple of weeks ago) on 10 August.
Imperium is released in theatres and on demand in the US on 19 August. It will be released by Signature Entertainment on 23 September.
A24 and Picturehouse Entertainment have announced they will co-release Swiss Army Man, starring Daniel Radcliffe as a farting, talking corpse. The release date is set for 30 September 2016, just a week after Dan’s other film Imperium gets released.
We’re a lucky bunch!
No further details are available at the moment but as soon as we know more, we will of course let you know!
