Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe To Play Journalist Adelstein In Tokyo Vice Movie

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to star in a new Japanese underworld thriller, titled Tokyo Vice.

The former child star will portray real-life journalist Jake Adelstein in the film, which is adapted from the writer's memoir, Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan.

The project chronicles the American's experiences as a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Press Club, during which he exposed a corruption scandal and helped end Yakuza gang boss Goto Tadamasa's reign of terror.

Music video director Anthony Mandler has been tasked with shooting the thriller, which will begin production next summer (14).
