11 Apr – Now that he has tried a lot of roles throughout his career, Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed that he plans to one day direct his own movie.

The "Harry Potter" star spoke about his plan during an interview with the Empire Podcast, saying that he has an idea for a movie about his experiences in the film industry.


"People always say, 'Write what you know'. I've had a very unrelatable life, so I don't want to write that. But I have found a way of writing something that is kind of connected to the film industry, about that," he said.

Although he will not be helming the project anytime soon, saying that his schedule is already packed for the next 18 months, Radcliffe said that he would still want to direct the project himself.

However, "The Lost City" actor is saying no-no on starring in the said movie.

"I would like to just direct, for two reasons – partly because I've never done it before, and I wouldn't want to be thinking about both those things at the same time. But more practically, because when you direct a film, you have to watch that film a thousand times afterwards in the edit, and no part of me wants to watch my face that much. I'll skip that."
