AFM: Daniel Radcliffe’s ‘Tokyo Vice’ Shooting in Mid-2014

FilmNation Entertainment to finance and handle international sales at AFM

“Tokyo Vice” has been set to start shooting in mid-2014, with Daniel Radcliffe starring as journalist Jake Adelstein.

In an announcement on the eve of the American Film Market, FilmNation Entertainment signed on to finance and handle international sales at AFM.

Radcliffe was first attached to “Tokyo Vice” in May, with music video and commercial director Anthony Mandler directing.  The script is being written by J.T. Rogers.

John Lesher and Adam Kassan will produce, and Binn Jakupi will exec produce for Le Grisbi Productions.

The script is based on the memoir “Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan,” which chronicles Adelstein’s time spent as the only American journalist accepted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Press Club along with his work to expose one of Japan’s mightiest Yakuza bosses.

“Tokyo Vice” was packaged by UTA, which arranged financing for the project and is representing U.S. rights to the film.

The “Harry Potter” star has remained active since the final film was released in late 2011. Radcliffe is currently starring in “Kill Your Darlings” and will next be seen starring opposite Zoe Kazan in “The F Word” and opposite Juno Temple in horror-thriller “Horns.”
