scandal 01/05/2018

Kiwi filmmaker Jason Lei Howden began production on Guns Akimbo in Auckland on Saturday, with Samara Weaving joining Daniel Radcliffe in the cast.

The movie is described as an "adrenaline-fuelled, balls-to-the-wall original action comedy" and is the second feature for the writer/director following his hit 2015 horror comedy Deathgasm.

"I am massively excited to be here in Auckland starting filming on Guns Akimbo," Radcliffe says.  

"Jason Lei Howden has written a brilliant and delightfully insane script, and working with him as director and alongside the fantastic Samara Weaving to bring it to life is going to be a lot of fun.

"If you see me around Auckland looking very worse for wear and covered in blood and bruises, don't worry - this is probably for filming."

Guns Akimbo will follow an ordinary man whose mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled in a dark social media movement that forces strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience.

Howden told Flicks.co.nz he hopes Guns Akimbo beats the 'high watermark' set by acclaimed modern action movie John Wick.
