British star Daniel Radcliffe will star alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum in upcoming romantic action-adventure film The Lost City of D. Radcliffe, the star of the Harry Potter film series, will play the villain in the movie, which hails from Paramount Pictures, reported Variety. The film’s cast also include actors Patti Harrison and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.
The Lost City of D is described as a “Romancing The Stone”-style romantic comedy. It follows a reclusive romance novelist (Bullock) who was sure nothing could be worse than getting stuck on a book tour with her cover model (Tatum), until a kidnapping attempt sweeps them both into a cutthroat jungle adventure, proving life can be so much stranger, and more romantic, than any of her paperback fictions.
Adam and Aaron Nee, best known for the 2015 indie Band of Robbers, will direct the project. Dana Fox has written the most recent draft of the script, based on an idea and treatment by Seth Gordon. Bullock is also producing the film via her Fortis Films banner, along with Gordon’s Exhibit A and Liza Chasin and her 3dot Productions. The Lost City of D is slated to release on April 15, 2022.
Daniel Radcliffe was last seen on the fourth season of Netflix sitcom Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, titled Kimmy vs The Reverend that premiered last year. The show, created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, stars Ellie Kemper in the titular role and Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane and Jane Krakowski as rest of the primary cast members.
