Radcliffe is set to play Jake Adelstein, the only American journalist ever to have been admitted to the insular Tokyo Metropolitan Police Press Club
, where for twelve years he covered the dark side of Japan: extortion, murder, human trafficking, fiscal corruption, and the yakuza…
…but when his final scoop exposed a scandal that reverberated all the way from the neon soaked streets of Tokyo to the polished Halls of the FBI and resulted in a death threat for him and his family, Adelstein decided to step down. Then, he fought back.
The film is set to begin shooting in early 2014, and as usual – with every new update we’ll be back, so make sure you stay tuned!
