After playing teen wizard Harry Potter for roughly
a decade, Daniel Radcliffe is doing what he can to
change public perception attached to that role, tak-
ing a wide array of different roles. And what s as
far away from an adolescent magic practitioner as
you can get? Why, an undercover FBI agent, that s
what, which is exactly who Radcliffe is going to
play in the upcoming thriller Imperium.
Deadline reports that Radcliffe is going to take the
lead role in Imperium, which sounds like it s going
to be one hell of an intense ride, and it s based on
real events, which only ups the ante even further.
The former cinematic wizard is set to star in the
story of a young FBI agent who is recruited to go
deep undercover. He infiltrates a group of white
supremacist terrorists who want to make a dirty
bomb. You can imagine various ways that this will
translate to some crazy on-screen tension. The movie
is based on the experiences of Michael German, a
deep cover agent who spent years working to take
down neo-Nazi militias throughout the United States.
German also co-wrote the script with Daniel Ragussis,
who is slated to make his feature directorial debut
Starring in horror movies like The Woman in Black
and Horns, period dramas like the upcoming Brooklyn
Bridge, and even a hilarious cameo in Judd Apatow s
Trainwreck, Radcliffe is adding a great deal of variety
to his post-Potter resume. And from what we can
tell, Imperium is going to bring yet another new
wrinkle to his career. Sure, there is definitely action
and tension in the Harry Potter movies, but this
sounds like an entirely different kind of animal.
It also adds yet another project to Daniel Radcliffe s
increasingly busy shooting schedule. He s filming
the indie flick Swiss Army Man; will appear with
James McAvoy in Victor Frankenstein, where he plays
Igor, and which tells the Frankenstein myth from his
Radcliffe to star in FBI drama
Daniel Radcliffe...is doing what he can to change
perspective; he ll play Lee Atwater in the political
comedy Young Americans; join the magic heist Now
You See Me: The Second Act; and play Rockstar
Games president Sam Houser in Game Changer,
BBC s TV movie about the creation and legal troubles
of the Grand Theft Auto games. At some point he ll
probably have to find time to do things like sleep
and eat, too. (cinemablend.com)
Long before Bryan Singer made
Superman Returns, it was
going to be Tim Burton who
brought the Man of Steel back to the
big screen, the director signing Nicolas
Cage to star in Superman Lives.
That project wound up not getting
made due to multiple factors, but it
turns out that Cage actually doesn t
have a problem with that, given that
he thinks the movie is better off existing
in all of our individual imaginations.
Cage recently sat down with Yahoo!
in promotion of his new movie Runner,
and it was during their conversation
that the subject of the doomed Super-
man Lives came up.
The actor was asked about the doc-
umentary that was recently released
about the project, titled The Death of
Superman Lives: What Happened?, and
while he didn t really have anything
incredibly specific to say about the
movie, he did express a lack of regrets
regarding the project s ultimate progress.
Said Cage, "I will say that I had great
belief in that movie and in what Tim
Burton s vision was going to be for that
movie. I would ve loved to have seen
it, but I feel that in many ways, it was
sort of a win/win because of the power
of the imagination.
I think people can actually see the
movie in their minds now and imagine
it and in many ways that might resonate
more deeply than the finished project."
One such thing that we are now just
left to imagine instead of see realized
is Tim Burton s vision for Superman s
homeworld, Krypton---which apparently
had a real effect on the Oscar winner.
Apparently it had a deep impact on the
actor, telling the Web site, "Tim is the
total artist, a pure artist with a real
vision, and I ve often said that he can
create worlds and that s exactly what
"I saw some of the tests of different
characters and costumes for Krypton
and they were just so surreal and so
magical and beautiful. He s definitely
one of my favorite filmmakers because
of his originality, because of his vision."
It s interesting that Nicolas Cage has
such a deep appreciation for Tim Bur-
ton, especially because the two men
have never actually worked together on
a project that actually made its way
Either Cage is either a super fan of
the director s work, or Burton made
one hell of an impression on him during
the attempt to make Superman Lives.
Regardless, it is kind of strange that the
two men never wound up working
together after their almost-blockbuster
collapsed in the early 1990s.
The documentary The Death of
Superman Lives: What Happened? was
completed and released earlier this year.
To see the film for yourself, you can
head on over to its official website,
where it s available for purchase.
Why it's good Nic Cage's
Either Cage is either a
super fan of the director's
work, or Burton made one
hell of an impression on
him during the attempt to
make Superman Lives.
