Seven Episodes for Miracle Workers

Your next original is The Detour in January?

Yes, so we have The Detour and a few other announced comedies coming up. We have our first animated series, which is called Final Space. It’s brilliant and funny, and creator Olan Rogers is the most original, authentic voice I’ve heard in a long, long time. We also have Miracle Workers with Steve Buscemi playing God and Daniel Radcliffe playing the angel in charge of the prayers department in heaven, and we just finished the table read for all seven episodes of that series.

Beast of Burden heading to Sundance?

2018 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jesper Ganslandt’s Beast Of Burden

For those who simply can’t get enough of, or bypassed what a Cessna misadventure might look like with covert operations and covert opportunities seen in American Made, might want to subscribe to what Swedish helmer Jesper Ganslandt is offering. Technically his fifth feature film (Swedish language Jimmie, his sixth feature also rolls out next year), for those not in the know, the filmmaker is one of the bold Scandi voices – his sophomore film The Ape pulverized the senses and his follow-up fiction offering in Blondie was pitifulness bliss. Shot in Savannah, Georgia last November, we’re thinking with a Daniel Radcliffe is the pilot’s seat, Beast of Burden, a Locke-like one physical space action-thriller might fancy a flight into Park City. Thesps Pablo Schreiber and Grace Gummer are co-pilots.

Gist: Written by Adam Hoelzel, Sean Haggerty (Radcliffe) only has an hour to deliver his illegal cargo. An hour to reassure a drug cartel, a hitman, and the DEA that nothing is wrong. An hour to make sure his wife survives. And he must do it all from the cockpit of his Cessna.

Production Co./Producers: MGMT Entertainment’s Paul Schiff and Michael Diamond (The Air I Breathe), Green-Light’s Chad Moore and Jeff Elliott.

Prediction: Premieres category. Berlin Film Fest also possible.

U.S. Distributor: Entertainment One. Lotus Entertainment (international)

Behind the scenes of Jungle

That was over a year ago, but new behind the scenes footage shows the former Harry Potter star filming scenes in Mt Tamborine, which easily passes for the Amazon jungle where the movie is set.

It tells the true story of Byron Bay resident Yossi Ghinsberg who became trapped in the Bolivian rainforest for three weeks in 1981. Mr Ghinsberg said he was “instantly happy” with the casting of Radcliffe.

“Daniel had a lot of passion for the story. He spent some time with me and we got to know each other before filming,” he said.  “I think he’s done an amazing job with the interpretation, it was a lot of hard work for him in terms of losing weight.

“He was hungry and went through a lot of hardship … nobody thinks of him as Harry Potter anymore. “We spent three weeks on set on the Gold Coast but I was a bit worried because the Amazon is very mighty but this forest (Mt Tamborine) was a bit tamer. “The cinema is all about illusion though and it looks great on screen, you can’t tell the difference.”

What Freaks Dan out in Horror Movies

In the years since the blockbuster Harry Potter franchise which made him a household name, Daniel Radcliffe has been thoroughly adventurous with the roles he’s chosen on stage and screen. From starring on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, to playing beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, to his role as a flatulent corpse with a heart of gold in Swiss Army Man, we’ve come to expect the unexpected from Radcliffe and we’ve learned to never underestimate his dedication to every part he plays. In Jungle, out this Friday in theaters and VOD, Radcliffe might have found his most adventurous post-Potter role yet.

In Jungle, Radcliffe plays real-life Israeli survivor Yossi Ghinsberg who was famously stranded in an uncharted part of the Bolivian jungle for three weeks in 1981. In bringing this awe-inspiring true story of perseverance to the screen, Radcliffe worked for the first time with Australian director Greg McLean, widely known for his notoriously harsh and grisly 2005 horror debut Wolf Creek. Radcliffe and McLean share a passion for stories about survival against all the odds, and McLean’s uniquely gritty genre sensibilities bring a requisite intensity to the film.

Parade spoke with Radcliffe about bringing this astonishing true story to the screen, his ambitious career choices and where he draws the line in horror movies.

Daniel Radcliffe on Why He Likes It When People Make Fun of Him

TIME: What drew you to Jungle?

Daniel Radcliffe: The story itself is a survival story, but the thing I found very moving is the notion that there is this kernel inside people that refuses to die. Obviously in this situation, it is in a man surviving alone in the jungle, but I think this indestructible will to live applies to people in war or under terrible regimes and immense hardships around the world. I like to think there is something fundamental in all of us which can get activated when you’re really pushed to an extreme.

How would you survive if you were lost in the jungle for three weeks? I’d probably last 15 minutes.

I hope to God I never will be thrown into that situation. Like you, I’d probably survive really badly. I didn’t ever do the Boy Scouts, I can’t light a fire… If I got lost with somebody who was experienced with that kind of stuff I feel I would survive very well — I’d be a good helper. But if you were lost with me you’d be without a hope, really, especially if we were somewhere near water as I would probably drown.

Can you not swim?

I’m not a strong swimmer at all. I can swim, but I can’t float or tread water. You know those films like Open Water and stuff? That’s my actual worst nightmare.

So you’d never do a shark film?

I’ve done a lot of filming in water so I don’t mind being in and around it. But I don’t think I could do a shark film. The amount of water work that would be required and the amount of time in the open water — I don’t think I’d be happy about that.

Daniel Radcliffe on Harvey Weinstein

Actor Daniel Radcliffe has described the sexual harassment and assault allegedly committed by Harvey Weinstein as “disgusting” and said he hopes the revelations will change Hollywood for the better.

“I’m in awe of them. I am very grateful to them for coming forward,” Radcliffe said, referencing the dozens of women, including Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd and Angelina Jolie, who have come forward with allegations against the disgraced producer. Radcliffe never worked with Weinstein but said he met him “a couple of times.”

“People shouldn’t want to sexually harass people in the first place, but hopefully this moment can at least prove that if you do have that urge you will not get away with it,” the former Harry Potter star told TIME during a press event for his new movie, Jungle. “I don’t want the fear of being caught to be the thing that makes people not sexually harass people, but if that’s what it takes… If there is something positive that can come out of all this awfulness then it will be that.”

Radcliffe added that “weird power structures and hierarchies” exist across many industries. “The hierarchy of the film industry is something I’ve always thought is bullsh-t — to use a technical term,” he said. “It’s something I’d definitely like to see change.”

The actor, 28, said that working on the 2016 comedy-drama Swiss Army Man was the only film he’d ever worked on “with no hierarchy on set.” “The directors had been to college with most of the crew, so everyone was old friends. It was like, this is what filming should be,” he added.In Radcliffe’s latest role, he plays the real-life Israeli adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg, who found himself lost in the heart of the Bolivian rainforest in the 1980s.
