Actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo has been cast opposite Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter to Horns, The Woman in Black, Victor Frankenstein) in the indie, Guns Akimbo, a Jason Lei Howden-directed action comedy, which is currently filming in New Zealand, reports Deadline.
“It follows a lovelorn man Miles (Radcliffe) whose mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled in a dark social media movement that forces strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience.” A more detailed plot breakdown can be read here.
Bordizzo, who appeared in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and The Greatest Showman, will play Nova, a video-gaming, comic-book-loving ex-girlfriend of Miles.
Samara Weaving will be co-starring. Weaving, who you may remember from “Ash vs. Evil Dead”, announced herself in both Joe Lynch’s Mayhem and McG’s The Babysitter, stealing the show in both.
Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino of Occupant Entertainment are producing with Tom Hern of Four Knights.
