Rom-com role for Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe is adding comedy to his repertoire by signing up for new film The F Word.

The Harry Potter star has taken roles in darker movies such as The Woman In Black and Kill Your Darlings since his days as the boy wizard, and this week it was reported that he had signed up for supernatural fantasy thriller Horns.

But it seems the British actor is now ready to embrace the romantic comedy with a lead role in Canadian Michael Dowse's film about a young man and woman who try to remain friends despite being attracted to each other, reported Variety.

Revolutionary Road actress Zoe Kazan has been cast as the woman in the indie flick, which is expected to start shooting this summer.
