Daniel Radcliffe Set for 'College Republicans' With Dane DeHaan

Daniel Radcliffe, of much more than Harry Potter fame, might be reuniting with a few old friends for a new project. He, alongside John Krokidas and Dane DeHaan could be set for College Republicans.

Radcliffe, of course, was directed by Krokidas in Kill Your Darlings - a partnership that saw the Potter star lauded for his role as Allen Ginsberg. DeHaan was his co-star in the film, playing Lucien Carr.

Various representatives have denied that it’s a done deal to The Wrap, but that hasn’t stopped the rumours swirling around. The film would see Radcliffe and DeHaan playing the young Lee Atwater and Karl Rove before they became heavily involved in American politics.

The story focuses on the pair’s friendship as they plan out and implement a ‘dirty’ campaign for National College Republican Chairman. Late night scheming, hot coffees and long, wild road trips are all in store.

Despite taking on some really interesting projects, Radcliffe’s name is still synonymous with the Harry Potter franchise, which could have ended very differently, as the writer of the books, J.K. Rowling, admitted recently to Wonderland Magazine.

She said that Ron and Hermione got together for “very personal reasons”, not because they were a “credible” couple, adding: "I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That's how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron."

As it happens, Rowling would have preferred Harry and Hermione to gallop off into the sunset to the distinct ring of wedding bells.

"I know, I'm sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I'm absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people's hearts by saying this? I hope not."
