Daniel Radcliffe Would Like You to Stop Asking Him About Rap, Please

Daniel Radcliffe has made it clear his Harry Potter days are in the past, but his quidditch skills have come surprisingly in handy in his new role as an American drug mule, who spends almost all of his time in Jesper Ganslandt’s new film, Beast of Burden, hidden away inside a cockpit, on a mission to deliver cocaine across the U.S.-Mexico border to save his wife, played by Grace Gummer.

Instead of perching on a broomstick atop a pole in front of green screen and a wind machine, though, this time, Radcliffe, now 28, simply holed up in a fake cockpit in Savannah, Georgia—a much more comfortable experience, even if he was stuck in there for eight days straight. Safely back home in London, ahead of the film’s release next Friday, he talked everything from shooting with Ganslandt to systemic sexism to the 2014 rap session that’s still haunting him in his culture diet.

Drug smuggling is a pretty bold subject. What drew you to this role?

I guess I didn’t think of it as being a movie about drug smuggling—it kind of seemed incidental to me. It was more this kind of fun, very straight line story, literally about taking a guy from A to B and seeing how much awfulness we can throw at him in between. And I did a bit of research into the interesting way Jesper Ganslandt, the director, works, which seemed like it’d continue with this one, since I’m in the plane for so long, and it did. I had earpieces in and he was directing me live, saying, like, This person’s calling, and now this person’s calling, and now we’re going back to that one… We ended up doing huge chunks of scenes at one time, like half-hour long takes. It was the most like doing a play I’ve ever done on camera, just because you were able to go for so long and cover so much of the story in one hit. I really loved working with him. And I’m definitely an expert in fake-flying a plane now.

Do you have any experience with actually flying a plane? Did you try to study up?

I did—I took two lessons, just so that I had some sense of what it was like and how much you needed to move things to make things happen, so I wasn’t looking like I was trying to race a go-kart when I was trying to fly a plane. So, yes: I flew a plane for 15 minutes. My first lesson, they just gave me the controls, and it was terrifying. It did not feel like a thing that should have happened.

Beast of Burden on Blu-Ray and DVD

Beast of Burden out April 3 on Blu-Ray and DVD according to Amazon.

Summary:
The skies over the border of the United States and Mexico can be as dangerous and unforgiving as the desert below. Sean Haggerty (Daniel Radcliffe) has flown a route between the two countries many times with a secret cargo of heroin for a Mexican cartel. But tonight Sean isn’t just a drug mule – he’s a DEA informant with a stolen cartel laptop. Sean knows that his survival depends on sticking to his plan. FLY his plane. DROP his cargo. LAND his plane. RUN home to his wife. One more flight and the DEA gets what they want – a roadmap to take down the biggest cartel in Mexico. One more flight and Sean gets what he wants – witness protection and lifesaving surgery for his ailing wife. FLY. DROP. LAND. RUN. His plan is sound… until it isn’t. Sean’s wife, Jen,(Grace Gummer) is kidnapped by the cartel and the only way she makes it through the night is if Sean ditches his deal with the DEA. He’s forced to fight for his life, and Jen’s, all from the cockpit of his plane.

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.”
