Daniel Radcliffe has never been further from Harry Potter than in his new thriller, Imperium, in which he plays a young FBI agent undercover in a group of white supremacists.
The film, which co-stars Toni Collette as his wisecracking fellow FBI agent, is inspired by real events and the experiences of ex-FBI agent Michael German. Radcliffe plays Nate Foster, who is selected for the undercover job in the hopes of foiling a terrorist plot. Immersed in a deeply unsettling, hate-filled world, Nate must fight to maintain control of his own beliefs and principles while working to identify the threat and keeping his true identity and motives a secret.
The movie’s ensemble cast also includes Burn Gorman, Tracy Letts, Nestor Carbonell and Sam Trammell.
The feature debut for director Daniel Ragussius, Imperium is released in cinemas and on VOD on Friday 23rd September. Above is a taste of the intensity in store with a new clip of Radcliffe being interrogated by a white supremacist cult leader. Brace yourselves.
