Daniel Radcliffe as an Undercover Neo-Nazi in First 'Imperium' Trailer
"Just because you're not looking at something, doesn't mean it's not there." Lionsgate has unveiled a trailer for a film called Imperium, starring Daniel Radcliffe as a young "analyst" who goes undercover as a Neo-Nazi in order to figure out the inner-workings and help take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. This actually looks quite intriguing, with Radcliffe going all-in with this role. The full cast includes Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, with Nestor Carbonell, Burn Gorman and Sam Trammell. I'm impressed by the choices Radcliffe has been making ever since Harry Potter, he seems to enjoy challenging himself with unique roles working with up-and-coming filmmakers, and it's refreshing. This looks like it could be good.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Ragussis' Imperium, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe), a young, idealistic FBI agent, goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. The bright up-and-coming analyst must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy. Imperium is both written and directed by filmmaker Daniel Ragussis, making his feature directing debut after a couple of short films (Word Is Bond, Haber) previously. Based on a story by Michael German, inspired by real events. This film has not premiered at any festivals yet. Lionsgate will release Imperium in select theaters + on VOD starting August 19th later this summer. Interested in seeing this?
