A fair amount of Hollywood’s output stems from The Blacklist. About 200, in fact. The F Word is one which found a place in 2008. The list is made up of the best as-yet unproduced screenplays, which are voted on by film industry development executives. It’s a chance for budding screenwriters to upload their spec scripts and see how Tinseltown responds.
One of those success stories, The F Word, was adapted by Elan Mastai, the writer behind, err, Alone In The Dark and Sam Jackson actioner, The Samaritan. Based on the play Cigars And Toothpaste by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi, the film captures the confusion between two friends who realise they quite fancy each other. That’s right folks, the F stands for friends. Not that other word you were thinking. Here’s the official synopsis:

Daniel Radcliffe is not your little Harry Potter anymore. The actor is quickly shedding his boy-wizard skin, taking on a vast array of projects and scoring a hit with last year's "The Woman In Black." He has a diverse slate of projects on the way that includes indie Beat movie "Kill Your Darlings," fantasy/horror thing "Horns," and rom-com "The F Word." Dude can apparently do it all, and now he's going to face off against the Yakuza. No, really. Radcliffe will star in an adaptation of "Tokyo Vice," which has a script from J.T. Rogers, with music video helmer Anthony Mandler slated to direct. So, what's it all about? Well, it's a based-on-a-true-story tale about an American reporter working at Tokyo newspaper, whose coverage of crime stories finds him eventually in the sights of Yakuza crime boss Tadamasa Goto. Here's the Amazon book synopsis: Jake Adelstein is the only »

Daniel Radcliffe is keeping his post-Harry Potter career diverse with a range of projects in different genres. The actor has just completed filming on the adaptation of Joe Hill’s fantasy horror novel Horns, in which he plays a beleaguered young man who wakes up one day with a pair of devilish horns that manipulate people around him into executing their darkest thoughts and fantasies.
He’s also playing Allen Ginsberg in John Krokidas’ beat poet biopic Kill Your Darlings, starring in Michael Dowse’s romantic comedy The F Word, and recently signed on to play Igor in a new adaptation of Frankenstein. All this whilst maintaining a presence both on Broadway and London’s West End; Radcliffe certainly has a lot of energy.
Deadline reports that the actor is set to play another writer role, as American ...

Daniel Radcliffe is to star in Tokyo Vice.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, the fact-based thriller will star Radcliffe as American reporter Jake Adelstein, Deadline reports.
Adelstein was the first ever non-Japanese staff writer at the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper and became involved with Japanese crime boss Tadamasa Goto while covering the Tokyo crime scene.
Adelstein co-wrote the screenplay, which is based on his own memoir detailing his investigation and eventual exposure of Goto, and the personal toll it took on him.
While Emma Watson is certainly doing some interesting work in her post-Harry Potter career, you can also say that the boy wizard himself, Daniel Radcliffe, is making equally exciting choices with his recent tendency for dark and mature roles.
First, we saw him do some horror work in The Woman In Black. Then there was Kill Your Darlings, which made quite a splash at Sundance back in January. Radcliffe has also signed on to star in Horns, a film that has him playing a man accused of rape and murder. And how can we forget about the upcoming adaptation of Frankenstein that the actor may be involved in.
So, Mr. Radcliffe has been keeping very busy and it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down anytime soon. Today we’re hearing that the young actor has taken the lead role in Tokyo Vice, which is based on Jake »

The actor will portray Adelstein, an American reporter working for the Tokyo newspaper Yomiuri Shinbun on the crime beat. The story tells how his non-stop investigation of Yakuza crime lord Tadamasa Goto came at a high personal cost, including threats against his life.
Anthony Mandler is directing from a screenplay by Jt Rogers and Jake Adelstein. John Lesher and Adam Kassan are producing through their Le Gribsi Productions company. Production will begin in early 2014.
• In case you chose to forget about Equus and Kill Your Darlings, we’re just here to remind you that Daniel Radcliffe is really never going back to his Harry Potter days. He’s just lined up a new project: an adaptation of Jake Adelstein’s Tokyo Vice, a non-fiction account of Adelstein’s work as an American crime journalist in Japan. Music video director Anthony Mandler (Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” and Rihanna’s “Diamonds”) will helm the feature, and playwright J.T. Rogers will write the script. [Deadline]

Daniel Radcliffe is the process of managing an almost miraculous transition out of child Harry Potter stardom, and we are really, really enjoying getting to watch it happen. After launching a solid hit with The Woman In Black and then wowing Sundance audiences with Kill Your Darlings, he's getting ready to grow up in a new way: facing a villain who might be even scarier than Voldemort. According to Deadline, Radcliffe is now set to star in Tokyo Vice, a thriller based on the true story of Jake Adelstein, an American reporter who became a target of yakuza boss Tadamas Goto, a guy so terrifying he was called the John Gotti of Japan. Adelstein is still a reporter, and will work with screenwriter and playwright Jt Rogers to shape the story. On board to direct is Anthony Madler, a guy whose name you don't know but who has come up »
