After ‘Deathly Hallows – Part 1,’ What’s Next For Daniel Radcliffe?
Following the exhaustive international “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” press tour, Daniel Radcliffe might have the chance to sneak a few Z’s. Or not. The kid has a jam-packed schedule of projects lined up that will keep him busy for the next few years. That means even after the “Potter” franchise is done, you’ll have the chance to see Radcliffe on stage and screen for a long time to come.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2”
The franchise isn’t done, remember? Production wrapped up this past summer, and the film is set to hit theaters in July. Will it be in 3-D? What will Radcliffe look like as a 40-something adult in the film’s much-discussed epilogue? These are just a few of the questions we have about the upcoming installment.
“The Woman in Black”
The 21-year-old took a 10-day break from “Woman in Black” to promote “Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” but he’ll soon be headed back to the set for another four weeks of filming. Based on a 1983 thriller by Susan Hill, the supernatural thriller follows Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) as a lawyer who travels to sort out a recently deceased client’s affairs, encountering dark secrets and haunting presences when he arrives. Radcliffe told us he’s been loving the production, which is just a fraction of the size of a “Potter” film. “It’s faster,” he said. “I’m loving it. It’s very, very exciting.
“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”
Radcliffe made his Broadway debut in 2008’s “Equus.” He’s heading back to the Great White Way in February for “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” He’ll play J. Pierrepont Finch, a young New York City window washer who climbs the corporate ranks until his own profit-at-any-cost ideas threaten to bring everything crashing down. Previews are set to begin on February 26 at the Al Hirschfeld Theater, with the musical opening on March 27.
“All Quiet on the Western Front”
The Brit has already lined up another big-screen literary adaptation, though this one has nothing to do with witches, wizards or ghosts. In “All Quiet on the Western Front,” Radcliffe will play Paul Baumer, a German soldier sent to fight in the trenches during World War I. The shoot is expected to kick off in spring 2012.
