EXCLUSIVE: Actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo has been cast opposite Daniel Radcliffe in the indie, Guns Akimbo, a Jason Lei Howden-directed action comedy, which is currently filming in New Zealand.

It follows a lovelorn man Miles (Radcliffe) 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.

Bordizzo, who appeared in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and The Greatest Showman, will play Nova, a video-gaming, comic-book-loving ex-girlfriend of Miles.

Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino of Occupant Entertainment are producing with Tom Hern of Four Knights.

Bordizzo will next be seen in Anthony Maras’ Hotel Mumbai with Armie Hammer and Dev Patel and was recently announced as part of the voice cast of Sony’s animated film Wish Dragon.

She’s repped by UTA and Industry Entertainment.
