Daniel Radcliffe Joins 'Tokyo Vice'

Daniel Radcliffe just nabbed the lead role in Tokyo Vice!

Deadline reports that the 23-year-old actor will play American reporter Jake Adelstein who, while working at the Yomiuri Shinbun newspaper in Tokyo, covered the crime beat and locked horns with yakuza boss Tadamasa Goto, called the “John Gotti of Japan”.

The film is based on Mr. Adelstein’s memoir detailing how the journalist’s investigating and finally exposing the notorious gangster exacted a high personal cost and sacrifice which included death threats.

Mr. Adelstein will work with JT Rogers on the story, which will be directed by Anthony Mandler.

Production for Tokyo Vice is set for early 2014.
