“Kill Your Darlings” actors Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan are re-teaming with director John Krokidas on his second feature, the true story buddy comedy “College Republicans”.
Radcliffe would play Lee Atwater and DeHaan stars as Karl Rove in the 1973-set film in which aspiring politician Rove runs a dirty campaign for national College Republican Chairman under the guidance of campaign manager Atwater (Radcliffe).
The pair go on a spirited road trip to drum up support for Rove’s candidacy. Wes Jones wrote the script which ranked higher than the likes of “Argo” and “American Hustle” on the famed Black List.
Radcliffe’s reps say he’s not confirmed, the role is just one of several he’s considering at this point. Shia LaBeouf and Paul Dano were circling a previous version of the film.
Filming on the project aims to begin in November.
