Daniel Radcliffe to play photographer in indie film

The actor, who shot to global fame at the age of 11 after being cast to portray the wizard child in J K Rowling's bestselling book, has signed the period movie 'The Amateur Photographer'.

The film will be directed by Christopher Monger from his own screenplay, based on his novel of the same name, the Variety reported. The 1970-set tale is about a young man who discovers his artistic calling after being drafted by the denizens of a sleepy little New England mill town to serve as photographer of their most intimate moments. He battles local authorities while bringing a bit of a velvet revolution to the community.

Ted Hope and Anne Carey will produce through their This Is That Prods. banner, while Karen Montgomery will also produce. Radcliffe recently starred in 'Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows: Part 1' and will soon be seen in 'Part 2', the last 'Harry Potter' film, set for release July 15.

The actor also finished shooting thriller 'The Woman in Black'. Monger was recently nominated for an Emmy for writing the HBO movie 'Temple Grandin'.
