In the cinematic universe, James Ponsoldt is the Johnny Storm of emerging directors -- he's on fire. (That is a nerdy -- and perhaps, awful -- comic book reference. If you don't read comic books, just ignore me and know what I mean is Ponsoldt is now a go-to director for cinema.) His first film to premiere at Sundance was tender and touching movie called Smashed, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead (whose career is flourishing fast and furious) and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. This film was the catalyst that set his career as a prominent filmmaker in motion. Every film Ponsoldt directs now turns into gold. He's puts all the heart and soul he has into every film. Currently in theaters is his latest, The End...

In his time playing heroes and weirdoes and people of all stripes, Daniel Radcliffe hasn’t had the chance to play someone in law enforcement. He’s changing that with a new role, signing up to play an FBI agent in Imperium. Though it sounds like some sort of epic space opera, it’s actually rooted in the real-life story of Michael German, an FBI agent who spent years undercover in neo-Nazi and militia groups in the States. In the film, the character based on German will be similarly embedded, trying to stop a bunch of chaos-happy white supremacists constructing a dirty bomb. Daniel Ragussis, who has been making short films, is jumping to features with this thriller, which he co-wrote with German. All being well, the cameras should be rolling this autumn.It’s another job for the ever-busy Radcliffe, who is currently shooting surreal indie pic Swiss Army Man »

There.s something genuinely uplifting about learning that two established, young actors with bounds of potential still yet to flourish are going to work on a project together. Especially when that project is itself teeming with possibilities too. So the revelation that Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe are making a comedy about a man who becomes BFFs with a dead body should fill you with great joy.

The impressive cast has also been rounded off with the addition of Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Meanwhile, after his turns in the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe has done an exemplary »
There have been a few movies about cults in recent years, but none quite as smart and funny and weird and disarming as Riley Stearns superb directorial debut, Faults. In it Leland Orser plays a man who specializes in deprogramming victims of cult brainwashing. He's seen better days and is having a rough go of things until he encounters a set of parents who want to hire him to deprogram their daughter, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Once those two meet, however, things get... strange. Faults is out now on Video on Demand and is even a $.99 rental this week on iTunes, which is a heck of a great deal for a great movie. And that gives me a great excuse to finally publish an interview I did with Stearns earlier this year. In it we talk about other cult movies, what it's...

Swiss Army Man: Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano (Love & Mercy) will star in Swiss Army Man, an independent, absurdist comedy about "a hopeless man stranded in the wilderness who befriends a dead body and together they go on a journey." Mary Elizabeth Winstead will also star; Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert wrote the original screenplay and will direct. Production is expected to get underway in July.

Love & Mercy star Paul Dano, Harry Potter alum Daniel Radcliffe and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead have joined the cast of Swiss Army Man, one of the most quirky-sounding dramas we’ve seen get the green light in recent times.
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, known jointly as Daniels, are at the helm of the indie pic, which centers on a hopeless young man who finds a dead body while stranded in the wilderness. Striking up conversation with and then befriending the corpse, the man begins a very surreal journey to find his way back home. Told you it was weird.
No details yet on which roles the stars will be playing, but its nonetheless exciting to see such a talented trio of performers come together for a project, particularly one this unusual. Dano, who has been playing oddballs for years in everything from Little Miss Sunshine to Prisoners, »

Despite all his years of dealing with spells, spooks, strange creatures and Snape, Daniel Radcliffe might not be ready for the surreality of his next project. He, alongside Paul Dano and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, is all aboard Swiss Army Man.So far, so relatively routine, you might think. But then you read the plot of Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's (Deadline reports that they simply go by “the Daniels”) film and the strangeness kicks in. The story follows what happens when a hopeless man struggling through a wilderness meets and befriends a dead body. Together, the pair undertakes a weird journey to get home. Told you it was odd. But then, we suppose Radcliffe actually does have the experience to deal with this one.

So, once upon a time, there was a movie released by a major studio called "Weekend At Bernie's," wherein a couple of dudes manage to convince everybody around them that their dead boss is actually alive. Hey, it was the late '80s and times were wild. But is the forthcoming "Swiss Army Man" riffing on the same vibe? Deadline reports that Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead will team up for the movie, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert aka The Daniels, about a man who befriends a dead body in the wilderness and takes him on his journey home. No word yet on who is playing what but I'm going go with Dano as the man, Radcliffe as the "dead guy," with Winstead as someone who has to deal with these two. Production starts in July so....see you at Sundance? At any rate, we're »
