Daniel Radcliffe keen to direct a movie
The Harry Potter star is ambitious to helm a small scale film in the future
Daniel Radcliffe is keen to take a seat in the director’s chair at some point in the future, the English actor has said.
The Harry Potter star, 25, reckons he could be talented behind the camera as he is “quite good with people”.
“I would love to direct,” he told Variety. “I do it in my head when I’m watching other directors direct. ‘No, don’t say that to them!’”
“The mistake I see even the really good directors make is they assume they are the only creative person on the set,” he added.
“Actually, make-up artists are not just girls with brushes who put foundation on, and costume guys are not just there to stitch up accidents. They are all immensely creative people.”
Radcliffe expects his directorial debut to be small scale. The kind of film he would like to make would be “totally funny and creepy in a way that so few manage to be”, he said, citing Charlie McDowell’s Sundance drama The One I Love as inspiration.
Radcliffe will next be seen in the movie adaptation of Frankenstein, after starring in the Broadway production of Mary Shelley’s classic novel.
He is also set to appear in forthcoming rom-com What If alongside Zoe Kazan. The film’s Mexico City premiere was cancelled over the weekend due to crowd control concerns when masses of fans turned up to see Radcliffe.
