Daniel Radcliffe begins filming new movie Guns Akimbo in Auckland

If you see him on the streets bloodied and bruised, don’t be alarmed!

Keep your eyes peeled because Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe is currently in Auckland filming upcoming movie Guns Akimbo.
The film, which has been described as an "adrenaline-fuelled, balls-to-the-wall original action comedy," also features a strong Kiwi cast which is soon to be announced.
The story follows an ordinary man, Miles (Radcliffe), whose mundane existence of scrolling through the same three apps, enduring his office job and longing for the lost love of his much more adventurous ex, 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.
Alongside Radcliffe is Australian actress Samara Weaving, famous for her roles in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, SMILF and Picnic at Hanging Rock.
"I am massively excited to be here in Auckland starting filming on Guns Akimbo," Says Radcliffe.
"Jason Lei Howden has written a brilliant and delightfully insane script, and working with him as director and alongside the fantastic Samara Weaving to bring it to life is going to be a lot of fun. If you see me around Auckland looking very worse for wear and covered in blood and bruises, don't worry, this is probably for filming."
Jason Lei Howden is a Kiwi filmmaker, famous for his work on Deathgasm (2015) and The Avengers (2015).
"I'm delighted to be hosting Daniel Radcliffe and Samara Weaving, as well as our German partners, for this exciting co-production between Germany and New Zealand. I'm sure they're going to have a ball on the fine shores of Aotearoa!" says producer Tom Hern.
Radcliffe has been in Auckland for just over a week and has been spotted working out at a gym.

It's safe to say we're going to be on Radcliffe watch for the next few weeks!
