Daniel Radcliffe may be directing his own movie about his time in Hollywood
Daniel Radcliffe has portrayed a wide range of characters throughout the years, including the titular character in Harry Potter and a dead body in Swiss Army Man. However, he may be heading to the director's chair.
He has not only written a film based on his experience in the film industry, but he also wants to direct it, according to a recent interview with The Empire Film Podcast.
“I’ve got an idea for something that I have written,” Radcliffe says (via Collider). “I’m hopefully going to direct. It will be in a couple of years’ time because the next 18 months at least are pretty much accounted for already... People always say, ‘Write what you know.’ I’ve had a very unrelatable life, so I don’t want to write that. But I have found a way of writing something that is kind of connected to the film industry, about that.”
He also revealed the two reasons he'd rather direct than star in the movie.
“I would like to just direct, for two reasons – partly because I’ve never done it before, and I wouldn’t want to be thinking about both those things at the same time,” he explains. “But more practically, because when you direct a film, you have to watch that film a thousand times afterwards in the edit, and no part of me wants to watch my face that much. I’ll skip that.”
