Daniel Radcliffe for Tokyo Vice

May 2 2013, 4:14am CDT | by

Daniel Radcliffe is set to star in 'Tokyo Vice'.

The 'Harry Potter' actor has signed on to play the lead role in director Anthony Mandler's forthcoming thriller based on the real life events of a journalist who exposed a Yakuza mafia boss, reports Deadline.

The story follows American reporter Jake Adelstein, who, while working at a newspaper in Tokyo, Japan, was assigned to the crime beat and found himself in the crosshairs of Yakuza boss Tadamasa Goto, known as the ''John Gotti of Japan''.

The journalist detailed his brush with the mob in a memoir - from which the film's script will be adapted - and the high-stakes drama will track how Adelstein investigated and eventually exposed the criminal kingpin at great personal cost, including death threats.

Adelstein will contribute to playwright JT Rogers' script for the film, which will be produced by John Lesher and Adam Kassan for Le Grisbi Productions.

Radcliffe scored a post-'Harry Potter' hit last year when he starred in 'The Woman in Black', the most successful British horror film of all time, grossing $130 million worldwide.

The actor has also recently signed on to star in 20th Century Fox's remake of 'Frankenstein'.

Mandler is best known for directing music videos for the likes of Rihanna.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH International Trailer Reveals More Creepy Bumps in the Night at the Eel Marsh House

Half the fun of The Woman in Black was seeing what Daniel Radcliffe could do post-Harry Potter so when The Woman in Black: Angel of Death was announced and Radcliffe wasn’t attached, I couldn’t help but think, what’s the point?  Woman in Black is a fine film, but there’s nothing particularly mind blowing about the Eel Marsh legend and, sure enough, the Woman in Black: Angel of Death trailers have failed to impress.  However, we just got a brand new international edition and it ac ...

New Teaser for THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Introduces the Title Character

Oct 10 2014 9:35am CDT | Source: Collider

I remember being a little underwhelmed by The Woman in Black when I first saw it in 2012.  It was a well made movie, but fell firmly into the category of "not my thing" despite the fact that I'm a huge horror nut.  Most fans disagreed with me though and the movie made an impressive sum of money on a relatively small budget.  If you saw the ending of that film, it will come as no surprise that Daniel Radcliffe ...
