According to Mxdwn, Dan Radcliffe’s next role is in Tokyo Vice, based on the true story of Jake Adelstein, the first westerner in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Club. Adapted from his 2009 best seller, Adelstein writes about how he investigated and infiltrated a Japanese organized crime syndicate that focused on money laundering and human trafficking.
The author of the novel will also be co-writing the movie script with childhood friend and Olivier award-winning playwright, JT Rogers.
“It’s the story of my life and JT is an old friend, I felt confident he would not take liberties. I think it will be an accurate portrayal of organized crime in Japan, with a strong emphasis on the many people and police that live by a strong sense of honor,” says Adelstein.
The thriller, reportedly scheduled for a release date sometime in 2014, has not yet begun production, but Dan’s publicist has confirmed his involvement in the project.
