Daniel Radcliffe isn’t the only Harry Potter actor carving out a bright post-Hogwarts career. There’s also Tom Felton (aka Draco Malfoy), who Deadline reports has signed up to star in Therese Raquin, alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Glenn Close. And this time Tom doesn’t have to play the villain, as he’s gonna be the victim!
The project is based Emile Zola’s 1867 novel, which was later turned into a famous stage play. The story centres on the title character (Elizabeth Olsen), who murders her sickly husband Camille (Tom Felton) with the help of Laurent, her new lover. Years later, she discovers Camille is haunting her new marriage with Laurent, turning each of them against each other. Glenn Close will play Therese Raquin’s mother, who arranged the marriage with Camille.
Charlie Stratton (Formosa Betrayed) is directing from his own screenplay, although it’s not certain when shooting will begin.
