Daniel Radcliffe has been set to play the engineer, Washington Roebling, who built the Brooklyn Bridge in the aptly titled Brooklyn Bridge for several months now. But for the film, which is inspired by the bridge’s real-life construction, key to the actual story were Roebling’s father and wife, who have now also been cast.
Daniel Radcliffe’s role as Harry Potter is what launched his career, but the actor doesn’t even think he was all that great in the film series. “My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across,” Radcliffe told the Daily Mail.
There are many things that can get in the way of true love, but one surefire way to put an end to a relationship before it even starts is, well, by already being involved in another relationship. That’s the idea behind What If, the upcoming romantic comedy from writer Elan Mastai and director Michael Dowse.
What If stars Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe as Chantry and Wallace, two people who seem more or less destined to fall in love—if only it weren’t for Chantry’s boyfriend. So now that the couple is forced into friendship, where will their journey take them? Well, we’ve got an exclusive preview of the film, in which the cast explains what makes this romantic comedy a little different from what you’re used to.
Losing your girlfriend to murder is hard enough. Losing your girlfriend to murder, being accused of that murder, and then sprouting devil-like horns out of nowhere? Probably the worst.
This is what happens to Daniel Radcliffe’s character Ig in Horns, a film based on a book of the same name by author Joe Hill about a man who grows horns only to find that they give him great power. Because apparently, people start confessing their every secret to you once you start looking like the devil.
Daniel Radcliffe is smart, rich, and has a good sense of humor—and all three qualities are evident in Horns, the festival movie based on Joe Hill’s supernatural mystery novel and directed by horror maestro Alexandre Aja.
He’s smart because he’s constantly trying new things, like playing a murder suspect who sprouts devilish horns out of his head. Rich, from all of his Harry Potter money, which allows him to take chances on right-field genre movies without having to check his bank account first. And funny, because Horns is full of clever references to playing The Boy Who Lived for half of his life.
The movie, which co-stars Juno Temple, Heather Graham, and The Social Network‘s Max Minghella, premiered at Toronto last fall and is coming to San Diego’s Comic-Con next week. In the trailer, Radcliffe’s hero, Ig, communes with snakes, has a splitting headache, and drives a Gremlin. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
As anyone who’s read Mary Shelley’s classic horror novel (or seen one of the many film adaptions of the story, now in the public domain) can tell you, the creature most people think of as “Frankenstein” should really be called “Frankenstein’s monster.” 20th Century Fox’s upcoming take on the tale, however, has a title that makes the delineation even clearer: It’s called Victor Frankenstein, emphasizing the man, not the monster.
As a genre, the romantic comedy has been coasting on fumes for several years. Its last really big box-office hit was Hitch, and that premiered in 2005. What was the last rom-com that you loved enough to see twice? Mine was Knocked Up — which came out seven years ago.
But despite the genre’s recent, sluggish track record, maybe Hollywood should stop trying to reinvent the wheel and instead double down on old-school convention. That seems to be the course of What If, a throwback to the likes of When Harry Met Sally that stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan. Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl has a boyfriend. Boy and girl become friends. Boy pushes boyfriend out window. You know the rest.
There is something sweet about What If, which screened at the Toronto Film Festival last fall when it was still titled The F Word. Are you willing to risk a blind date on it?

In the upcoming modern rom-com What If (Aug. 1), Daniel Radcliffe trades his wizard robes for jeans — and a bit of nudity.
But prepping for his first romantic lead required more than just dropping his drawers. In the film, from director Michael Dowse (Goon, Take Me Home Tonight), Radcliffe, 24, had to get comfortable acting in modern times. After Harry Potter and period films such as The Woman in Black, What If — about a med-school dropout (Radcliffe) who falls for an already attached art director (Ruby Sparks’ Zoe Kazan) — is Radcliffe’s “first foray into the 21st century,” he notes. To prep, he boned up on his genre faves: When Harry Met Sally…, It Happened One Night, and Arthur with Dudley Moore. READ FULL STORY
