Daniel Radcliffe to star in You Shall Know Our Velocity

A new project in line for Daniel. Variety is reporting today that Daniel is in talks to star in the indie adaptation of Dave Eggers’ comic novel You Shall Know Our Velocity with Peter Sollett directing. Producers are Tim Perell for Process and Michael Benaroya (“Margin Call”) for Benaroya Pictures. International Film Trust is handling all international rights in Cannes while CAA and UTA are representing the domestic sales rights.

The film is scheduled to start shooting next spring
It's about two mismatched friends — Radcliffe’s bookish and awkward Will and the self-proclaimed ladies’ man Hand, who set out on a two-week trip around the world and a $32,000 insurance payoff from their friend’s fatal car accident with the goal of giving away the windfall to those in need.
Christian de Gallegos, International Film Trust:
 “Playing the lead character in the biggest film franchise of all time, Daniel Radcliffe has managed to successfully establish himself as one of the most versatile actors of his generation, and he is perfect to play Will in Peter Sollett’s nomadic comedy adventure."
