Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan set for the romantic comedy The F Word
After tackling fantasy so valiantly with the Harry Potter films and then finding success in the horror genre with THE WOMAN IN BLACK and then hoping for dramatic success with he upcoming KILL YOUR DARLINGS, it only seems natural that Daniel Radcliffe would continue to shed his Harry Potter image by branching out into new genres. Next up for Daniel Radcliffe is a starring role in the romantic comedy THE F WORD. The film is about two young people that meet at a party and the man (Daniel Radcliffe) instantly becomes smitten with the young lady (Zoe Kazan), but unfortunately for him, she has a long term boyfriend. He chooses to hide his affection for her and instead, the two try to be “just friends” instead.
The film is based on the play “Cigars and Toothpaste” by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi and has actually been around for quite a while. At one point, Casey Affleck, Rose Byrne, Rebecca Hall were all attached to star, but the film fell into development hell and was eventually scrapped, only to be picked up by Entertainment One. Michael Dowse, who directed the forgettable TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT, will handle directing duties. (Variety)
