Mackenzie Davis in talks for ‘F Word’

Thesp would join Radcliffe in Dowse pic

Rising thesp Mackenzie Davis, who co-stars in Drake Doremus’ next movie, is in final negotiations to join Daniel Radcliffe in Michael Dowse’s romantic comedy “The F Word.”

Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan star as twentysomethings who meet at a party and hit it off despite the fact that she has a long-term boyfriend. With the best intentions and a little denial, they decide to confront the challenge of being just friends.

Davis has been tapped for a key supporting role as a young woman who tries to facilitate a relationship between the protags. Thesp will share several scenes with Adam Driver (HBO’s “Girls”), who Variety first reported will play Radcliffe’s best friend.

Canadian shingle No Trace Camping is producing the indie pic penned by “The Samaritan” scribe Elan Mastai, whose script appeared on the 2008 Black List. David Gross and Jesse Shapira of No Trace Camping (“Goon”) will produce along with Marc Stephenson and Hartley Gorenstein. Dowse and Jeff Arkuss will exec produce with NHO Entertainment’s Mark Costa and Ford Oelman.

Davis will soon be seen playing Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan’s daughter in the next film from “Like Crazy” helmer Drake Doremus. Thesp, who appears alongside Aaron Paul in James Ponsoldt’s upcoming indie “Smashed,” recently wrapped an untitled Texas-set heist pic with “Shameless” star Jeremy Allen White. Davis is repped by UTA and Thruline Entertainment.
