Broadway Producers Battle For Radcliffe
Eleven Broadway theatre bosses are battling to have British actor DANIEL RADCLIFFE bring his stage debut EQUUS to New York City.
However, Radcliffe's commitments to the next HARRY POTTER movie - THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE - mean he wouldn't be able to perform in the US until next autumn (08).
The film is due to start filming later this year (07) and into 2008, and only then would Radcliffe, 17, have time to rehearse the PETER SCHAFFER play with co-star RICHARD GRIFFITHS.
Producer DAVID PUGH says, "As of Thursday morning, there are 11 offers from different producers - the great and the good, and people I've never heard of.
"Both Daniel and Richard are up for it, and so is THEA (SHARROCK) our director. It's just a matter of sorting out which producer we'll go with to Broadway."
