Variety is reporting that Radcliffe is also set to star in an upcoming romantic comedy entitled "The F Word." The 'f' in the title refers to the state of being in the "friend zone." Radcliffe will be starring alongside Zoe Kazan:

Story follows Wallace (Radcliffe) and Chantry (Kazan), a pair of twentysomethings who meet at a party and hit it off. However, Chantry has a long-term boyfriend, so with the best intentions and a little denial, they decide to confront the challenge of being just friends.

Pic is based on the play "Toothpaste and Cigars" by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi. Production starts Aug. 15 in Toronto, and additional casting is under way.

This is awesome and a wonderful genre choice for Radcliffe; it’s wonderful that his talent lies both in raw talent and growth through a 10 year evolution! I got the interesting perspective of watching Daniel perform in “Equus” on Broadway during a business trip for Dish, before the Harry Potter films. The wonderful conversations I had with fellow fans of the talented actor. On my most recent trip last week, I finally finished the last two Harry Potter films. It’s so much easier for me to subscribe to Blockbuster @Home and get my films by mail; perfect for late night after-hour hotel parties. My team had such a fun time watching the movies together. As for myself, it’s probably good I was in a Hilton and not a theater; I had a combination of tears and “Turrets” as the story unfolded before my tortured mind. Awesome ride!

I’m always up for a good romantic comedy! Like everyone, I’m so glad to see Dan & the rest of the HP cast do well post-Potter.

I can’t wait to see Dan in a romantic comedy! Should be so cool to see him in this. I’m so glad that he has been able to move into these new genres of movies and be accepted as an actor, not just Harry Potter

For one brief moment, the great black dog reared onto its hind legs and placed its front paws on Harry's shoulders, but Mrs. Weasley shoved Harry away toward the train door hissing, "For heaven's sake act more like a dog, Sirius!"
