It still doesn’t seem quite right that Daniel Radcliffe is signing up for movies that don’t start with ‘Harry Potter and the…’ but he’s added another, this time heading for his first romantic comedy, called The F Word. Zoe Kazan has also signed up for Goon director Michael Dowse’s movie.
Depite what you may think, the title doesn’t refer to a rude word. Daniel Radcliffe stars as Wallace, a young man who meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) at a party where they hit it off. The problem is, Chantry has a long-term boyfriend, and the duo must navigate through a tenuous friendship (that’s the F word), while keeping their feelings at bay.
Elan Mastai (The Samaritan) wrote the screenplay, which landed on the 2008 Black List, based on the play Toothpaste and Cigars by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi. Production is scheduled to begin August 15 in Toronto, with casting for supporting roles already under way. (Source: Variety)
