Daniel Radcliffe is a busy man, and his latest flick, Escape from Pretoria, sees him in a story based on actual events.

It centres around Radcliffe’s character Tim Jenkin, a young, white South African who was branded a terrorist and imprisoned in 1978 for working covert operations for Nelson Mandela’s banned ANC. Holed up in Pretoria Maximum Security Prison, he decides to send the apartheid regime a clear message and escape…

Also starring local actor Daniel Webber as Radcliffe’s partner in “crime”, as well as Professor Quirrell himself, Ian Hart, Escape from Pretoria is set for a UK release in March. We await local details.
