Samara Weaving Joins Daniel Radcliffe in DEATHGASM Director’s New Film



Like many of you out there, I was a big fan of writer-director Jason Lei Howden’s recent horror-comedy Deathgasm. The director made my must-watch list with that film and so I’m excited as hell whenever we get word on his next movie.

And speaking of his next flick, for those who might not know it’s called Guns Akimbo and it is all set to star Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter). And if that wasn’t cool enough, today we have word via Scoop that Samara Weaving joined the cast as well.

The “adrenaline-fuelled, balls-to-the-wall original action comedy” began shooting today in Auckland with production also set to take place in Munich, Germany soon.

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.”

The film is written and directed by Jason Lei Howden (Deathgasm). The film is produced by Occupant Entertainment in association with Pump Metal Films and Ingenious Media in an official Germany/New Zealand co-production with Four Knights Film as well as Maze Pictures and Occupant Entertainment Germany. Altitude Film Sales are handling international sales.


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.
