Daniel Radcliffe will be starring in Imperium, a thriller that will see him play a young FBI agent who goes undercover to stop white supremacists from making a dirty bomb.

According to Deadline, the actor will be taking on a role based on the real-life events experienced by FBI agent Michael German, who lived undercover with U.S. neo-Nazi and militia groups for around two years.

Imperium, from Atomic Features and Tycor International Film Company, is to be the feature directorial debut for short filmmaker Daniel Ragussis. Interestingly, Ragussis has co-written the screenplay alongside German himself.

Radcliffe has a ton of projects on the horizon, including Victor Frankenstein, which also stars James McAvoy and hits the U.S. on November 25, and Game Changer, which will see him playing Rockstar Games president Sam Houser in a TV movie about how the Grand Theft Auto video game series came to life.
