Daniel Radcliffe Speeding to ‘You Shall Know Our Velocity’

Daniel Radcliffe will star in the indie adaptation of Dave Eggers’ comic novel “You Shall Know Our Velocity” with Peter Sollett directing.

Producers are Tim Perell for Process and Michael Benaroya (“Margin Call”) for Benaroya Pictures. Intl. Film Trust is handling all international rights in Cannes while CAA and UTA are representing the domestic sales rights.

“Velocity” is scheduled to start shooting next spring with Sollett directing from Wells Tower’s adaptation about two mismatched friends — Radcliffe’s bookish and awkward Will and the self-proclaimed ladies’ man Hand, who set out on a two-week trip around the world and a $32,000 insurance payoff from their friend’s fatal car accident with the goal of giving away the windfall to those in need.

Radcliffe’s shot five films since finishing the eight Harry Potter movies — “The Woman in Black,” “Kill Your Darlings,” “Horns,” “What If” (originally titled “The F Word”) and “Frankenstein” as Igor with James McAvoy in the lead. Benaroya produced “Kill Your Darlings.”

Sollett’s credits include “Raising Victor Vargas” and “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.”

Perell’s Process Media first picked up the movie rights to “You Shall Know Our Velocity” in 2007 and signed Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl”) to direct at that point. Perell’s other credits include “Shortbus,” “A.C.O.D.,” “Trust the Man” and “Love Punch.”

A movie version of Eggers’ novel “A Hologram for the King” is in production with Tom Tykwer directing and Tom Hanks starring.

Radcliffe is represented by Sue Latimer at ARG in the U.K. and by UTA in the U.S. and attorney Fred Toczek.
