Daniel Radcliffe Will Star in Around-the-World Journey "You Shall Know Our Velocity"
19 May 2014
Daniel Radcliffe will star in the new film "You Shall Know Our Velocity," a story about two friends traveling around the world, Deadline.com reports.
Adapted from Dave Eggers' novel, the film tells the story of two friends who embark on a two-week trip. They received a $32,000 insurance payoff after another friend died and have round-the-world plane tickets; they hope to give away the money when taking their friend's ashes to the Pyramids.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
