Radcliffe to portray slain reporter

WASHINGTON: Daniel Radcliffe is set to play a celebrated photojournalist who was killed in Somalia. The 19-year-old, who finishes shooting on the boy wizard franchise next year, is determined to take the part close to his heart. He will play the role of British journalist Dan Eldon, who was battered to death in 1993, reports Contactmusic.

Radcliffe says, “I have a few projects on the boil, but the one that I am really interested in is based on the real-life story of a photojournalist, Dan Eldon, who was only 22 when he was killed by an angry mob in Somalia in 1993. “He was a really heroic guy and we are just waiting for the green light on that one. It all depends on the funding.”
