Daniel Radcliffe's Post-Potter Ambitions Include Reuniting with J.K. Rowling
Posted 11.28.11 by Mandy
What would Daniel Radcliffe's boggart look like? It might take the shape of a thirty-something Radcliffe resting on his laurels.
For many people in their early twenties, having an established career and many millions of dollars might mean that it’s time to take a lengthy sabbatical, but that is definitely not the case for this Hogwart’s alum. After wrapping up Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the actor worked on a chilling Victorian-era ghost story, The Woman in Black (due out February 3, 2012), followed by a starring role for months on end in a Broadway musical, and he's also working on a screenplay. Radcliffe seems to have no plans to slow down.
In a recent interview with MTV, where the Harry Potter star was deemed to be the actor they were most thankful for, Radcliffe declared that the “worst-case scenario” for his life in ten years would be that he would be not working. The young actor explained that if he decided to pursue a different, non-movie related career that would be fine, as long as he was doing something. He just wants to be working.
The best case scenario? Plenty of movie roles under his belt, with perhaps a directing credit or two as well. He also reveals that he would love to direct a movie adaptation of a future J.K. Rowling novel which sounds like a project everybody could get excited about.
The Woman in Black opens February 3, 2012, and we'll keep you updated on any possible future Rowling and Radcliffe collaboration.
