As he continues to track down interesting, unusual projects, Daniel Radcliffe will be dealing with a dangerous, expanded version of Fight Club for Guns Akimbo.

According to Deadline, it's an action comedy from writer/director Jason Lei Howden that will see Radcliffe as a low key loser named Miles who spends his days in a dead-end job, avoiding responsibility while he pines for ex-girlfriend Nova.

But his boring days are shaken up when he's unexpectedly on a dark net website that forces strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, with the resulting clashes live-streamed to eager audiences worldwide. Chosen by the shadowy gang known as Schism (who tend to handicap the weaker contestant to stack the odds against them), Miles is initially able to elude his first opponent, but when Nova is kidnapped, he'll have to step up and fight for the woman he loves.

Howden, who last made horror comedy pic Deathgasm, is a veteran of Weta Digital, and previously worked on VFX for films such as Avengers Assemble, the Hobbit films and Prometheus.

As for Radcliffe, he has action adventure Jungle and thriller Beast Of Burden headed our way.
