While we are still anxiously awaiting the release of “The Woman in Black,” Daniel Radcliffe’s first big post-“Harry Potter” film, it’s never too early to start thinking about what other projects the young superstar will be considering after “Black” opens.
When MTV News caught up with Radcliffe recently, we asked him to give us some clues as to what we might expect from him in the next year, specifically whether he’d officially signed on to a new film following the release of “Black.”
“Closer and getting closer every day, but not anything confirmed yet, unfortunately,” Radcliffe said of his 2012 working schedule and several film roles he’s considering. “Hopefully I’ll definitely have three weeks off in February and then shortly after that, I would hopefully be making a film and it would hopefully be over here,” he said of his wishes to continue working Stateside, following his run on Broadway in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
“That would be an entirely new experience for me; I’ve never filmed in America. I’d really like to do that, with an American crew and have that experience,” he said. “I’m hoping to make this year just about film, film, film and then maybe get back onstage maybe in the next two years.”
While he was cagey about exactly which films he’s considering, one Radcliffe role MTV News can now confirm is poet Allen Ginsberg in the independent film “Kill Your Darlings,” which is about how Ginsberg and fellow Beat Generation icons Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr first met.
“It’s one of the things that’s on the table absolutely. It would be amazing and I’m very, very enthused for that script and that young director,” he said of the John Krokidas-helmed project, which is also set to star Elizabeth Olsen, who recently raved about Radcliffe’s talent and her excitement to work with him in “Darlings.” “It’s an independent film, it’s welcome to the world of independent film — from one day to the next it could happen or not happen. Until I’m there on the set, I’m not going to say anything about it.”
