Daniel Radcliffe on What Made ‘Guns Akimbo’ Script ‘Fun to Read’ | Video

Radcliffe has been eager to shed his image as Harry Potter

Daniel Radcliffe said that he was “immediately intrigued” by the character he plays in Jason Lei Howden’s new indie “Guns Akimbo” — a man who has guns surgically attached to his hands.

“When I got to about page 10 of the script and there was this scene where my character Miles with his new gun-attachment hands has to work out and try to go to the bathroom,” the actor told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven last fall at the Toronto Film Festival, where the film premiered. “That was the moment that I was like, ‘You’re fully exploring the premise, I’m in!'”

The rest of the film proved just enticing to Radcliffe, who’s been eager to shed his image as Harry Potter in the long-running film franchise. “It was both insane and crazy and violent but also incredibly funny and just exciting and really fun to read,” he said.

“Guns Akimbo” is locked and loaded for theatrical release on February 28.
