Daniel Radcliffe continues his increasingly diverse career decisions next year with The F Word, a dramatic comedy that sees him starring alongside the rising young Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks).
The film sees Michael Dowse (Goon) return behind the camera, and with it now in post-production, Entertainment One Films have now released the first poster.
“Wallace and Chantry meet at a party while reading refrigerator magnet poetry and find that they have great chemistry…. as friends. Wallace, who has the appeal of a puppy dog and a very dry wit, falls for Chantry, smart, funny and just a bit funky. They form a relationship in which they talk about everything from movies to illnesses to disappointing Christmas presents. Their relationship grows as they email each other, go for dinners, and chat via instant messaging. It’s heavy interest at first sight but there is a problem; Chantry has a serious boyfriend.
The audience watches while Wallace falls harder for Chantry and Chantry must deal with her growing feelings for Wallace. Should friendship be squashed due to budding romantic influences or can men and women control their desire to simply enjoy the benefits of a platonic relationship?
With Chantry’s boyfriend, Paul, offered a job in Europe, and Wallace’s exceptionally attractive boss making serious overtures, will their relationship continue status quo or evolve?”
Starring alongside Radcliffe and Kazan in the leads will be Amanda Crew (The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud), Rafe Spall (Life of Pi), Megan Park (The Secret Life of the American Teenager), and Adam Driver (Frances Ha, Girls).
Dowse is directing from a script by Elan Mastai (The Samaritan), who adapts the original popular play, Toothpaste and Cigars, by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi.
The F Word is currently without a release date, but with such a great cast and a promising premise, this is definitely one to look forward to next year. For now, here’s our first look at the poster. Enjoy.
