First he was a wizard, then he was a paranormal guy with horns followed by being a farting corpse, and now Daniel Radcliffe is going to be a down on his luck Joe Shmoe who gets caught up in a gigantic game of death in Jason Lei Howden’s Guns Akimbo!
Deadline is reporting that Radcliffe has joined the Deathgasm director’s action comedy with Howden also acting as writer.
Per the site: “Guns Akimbo follows Miles, who spends his days in a dead-end job, pining for his beautiful ex-girlfriend, Nova. His mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled on a dark net website that forces complete strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death so that their gladiatorial battles can be live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience. Contestants are chosen by a clandestine gang known as Schism, who handicap the weaker contestant to further stack the odds against them. Initially Miles’ lifetime of running from his problems pays off as he manages to elude his first opponent, but when Nova is kidnapped, he must finally stop running and overcome his fears to fight for the girl he loves.”
If you haven’t had a chance to see Deathgasm, I HIGHLY recommend you fix that! It’s a wickedly entertaining film that is hilarious, outrageous, violent, and simply a blast! If Howden manages to capture even a tenth of that spirit in Guns Akimbo, I think we’re going to be in for a very exciting ride!
