Rickman, Radcliffe mentioned for roles in upcoming films

Two favorite actors from the Harry Potter films have recently been associated with two new filming projects.

Alan Rickman, known for the role of Severus Snape, will take on the part of Hilly Kristal in a rock ‘n’ roll flick. The story is based on the owner and founder of the legendary CBGB club in New York, where bands such as Green Day, Bruce Springsteen, The Police, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Soul Asylum once played. The film does not yet have a title and will begin shooting this June.

Additionally, Daniel Radcliffe has been mentioned as possibly joining Guillermo del Toro’s (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) new stop-motion Pinocchio film, set to release in 2014. Though no one has signed onto the film yet, del Toro stated Radcliffe asked to be a part of the project.

We look forward to these new films from two of our favorite actors!
