Daniel Radcliffe Plays the Villain in Trailer and Still for “The Lost City”

Beyond reuniting with cast and crew members from the Harry Potter film series in Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, Daniel Radcliffe has been promoting his new film The Lost City, also starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum.

As we previously reported, the film (originally titled The Lost City of D) sees Daniel in the role of the villain. (CNN even calls his character “a maniacal rich guy.”) Yahoo’s first look at the film, meanwhile, notes that Daniel is playing a billionaire named Fairfax.

Bullock plays brilliant but reclusive author Loretta Sage, famous for writing romance-adventure novels, all of which feature handsome model Alan (Tatum) on the cover. Alan, whom Tatum describes as a ‘modern-day Fabio,’ has dedicated his life to embodying the hero character, Dash. While on tour promoting her new book with Alan, Loretta is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire named Fairfax (played by Daniel Radcliffe) who hopes that she can lead him to the ancient treasure from her latest story. Thrust into an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely pair will need to work together to survive the elements and find the treasure before it’s lost forever. The film, directed by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, also features Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, [and] Bowen Yang, [as well as] a cameo by Brad Pitt.

In a still from Paramount Pictures, Daniel can be seen in character as Fairfax, holding a lantern at the bow of a boat as Bullock’s and Tatum’s characters, seated on the boat behind him, look on.
