HOLLYWOOD – Daniel Radcliffe is to play Elijah Wood in a new biopic: Becoming Frodo.
Daniel Radcliffe has been cast to play fellow actor Elijah Wood in a new biopic of the Lord of the Rings star: Becoming Frodo. Radcliffe spoke to the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY about the challenges of the role:
I’ve been watching Elijah all my life as an actor. Watching him grow and develop from the days of Flipper and The Ice Storm. As a fellow child actor, I’ve looked at Elijah as role model and inspiration. So it really makes sense to me to make this movie. In a way it’s an act of gratitude.
What will the film be about?
We will cover his career from the start to the filming and triumph of Fellowship of the Ring. We were worried about portraying him as a Hobbit because of the shortness thing. But luckily I’m really really short, naturally. So that won’t be a problem.
And how does this fit in with the film Elijah Wood is making about you: Becoming Harry?
This is where it gets interesting. If this film is a success, we’re thinking of making a sequel. This would include me playing Elijah making Becoming Harry. Charlie Kaufman is already writing a draft.
