Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter frame stars in Imperium as undercover cop on a dangerous mission.

Daniel likes to try out interesting roles and his FBI character is not an agent like James Bond or Jason Bourne. He is one that can convince almost anyone that they aren’t the one thing every bad guy is looking for, an infiltrator.

Daniel Ragussis, the director, explains further, “To successfully insinuate oneself into a criminal organization, an agent has to immerse completely in an alien world.” He told how it was “as shocking as it was revealing” and says he “became aware of a vast community living among us.”
