You’ve really got to hand it to Daniel Radcliffe, whether you want to or not. While there would be those more than happy to watch the Harry Potter star vanish off the face of the earth now that he has finished his tenure at Hogwarts, there is little point denying that the actor is around to stay.

Confessing in a documentary included on the upcoming Deathly Hallows: Part II DVD that he is mindful of how few opportunities he will likely have post-Potter to escape the pigwidgeon-hole the franchise has left him in, Radcliffe is certainly making the most of his three chances at a future, following as he is a highly anticipated turn in The Woman in Black and his universally well-received stage-performance in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying with a role in upcoming thriller Kill Your Darlings (via Twitch Film).

Inheriting the role of American beat poet Allen Ginsberg from previous favourite Jesse Eisenberg (and following in the footsteps of James Franco, who filled Ginsberg’s shoes in Howl), Radcliffe’s take on the role will chart the artist’s early days and concern his relationship with Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr – who in 1944 was imprisonment for the murder of his lover, David Kammerer.

Radcliffe will not be limiting himself to merely acting, however, with a recent interview with MTV alluding to a script he is in the process of writing. Having spent the last few years penning poetry in his spare time, The Boy Who Lived has a story in mind which he has described as both “arthouse” and “a film that no one wants to see”.

I don’t know about you, Daniel Radcliffe, but I’ll watch anything.
