Daniel Radcliffe set to star in real-life prison break movie ‘Escape From Pretoria’

Daniel Radcliffe is attached to another movie, reported Variety, this time based off a real-life prisoner break in South Africa (where filming will take place), called ‘Escape From Pretoria‘. He reunites with Harry Potter producer David Barron, as well.

Radcliffe will star as Tim Jenkin, one of two 20-something white South Africans branded as terrorists and imprisoned in 1978 for being involved in covert anti-apartheid operations for the African National Congress. Jailed in the Pretoria Maximum Security Prison, the pair decide to send the regime a clear message and plan an escape.

“Political without being polemical, ‘Escape From Pretoria’ is a rare combination of genre and drama, and I am delighted to bring together the potent combination of Daniel Radcliffe and Francis Annan on this astonishing true story,” said Barron.
