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. ❤

A brand new poster has been revealed exclusively by Entertainment Weekly today. The poster features Daniel Radcliffe in character as FBI analyst Nate Foster.
Director Daniel Ragussis said this of the film:
“Daniel Radcliffe plays Nate Foster, the agent. His greatest strengths are his intelligence and his people skills; I learned from Michael that actual undercover agents are primarily master manipulators — able to win confidences, control situations, and out-think the enemy, even when mortal danger is staring them in the face. Toni Collette plays Angela Zamparo, his case agent and supervisor. She’s spent years focusing on white supremacist terrorism and is really the only person out there that’s focused on keeping Nate alive.”
The EW article also confirmed that Imperium will be released in US theatres and On Demand on Aug 19th. Signature Entertainment are set to release the film in the UK on Sep 16th.
