He has been a wizard, a man with horns growing from his head, a romantic lead, a farting corpse, and now Daniel Radcliffe is an FBI agent tasked with going undercover to take down a group of Neo-Nazis planning a terrorist attack.
The first trailer for Imperium looks intense. The thriller was written and directed by Daniel Ragussis. In addition to Radcliffe starring, you also have Toni Collette, Burn Gorman, Sam Trammell and Tracy Letts.
Even though we have seen Radcliffe take on an assortment of roles since Harry Potter, this one promises to be his most intense. This could be the movie that completely washes away his days as a wizard from our memory. We’re sure that’s not the reason he accepted this role, but we have to imagine it’s always in the back of his mind.
Imperium will be released in theaters and on demand August 19, 2016. You should give it a shot. Check out the synopsis and trailer below…
“Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe), a young, idealistic FBI agent, goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. The bright up-and-coming analyst must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy. Inspired by real events.”
