Sebastian Coe is a mad famous British Olympic gold medalist middle distance runner, who is known by many for his amazing physical performances. He's also known by a completely different role, too: overseeing the London Olympics 2012 as chairman of the Games' organizing committee.
And Daniel Radcliffe is about to take him on as a role!!
The movie is called Gold, and it was written by Oscar winning scribe Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) and Will Davies (How To Train Your Dragon) — so you know it's in good hands!
Also, if you remember, Woman In Black, the horror movie that paved the way for DanRad to shake off his Harry Potter stank, the same director will be shooting this one — James Watkins!
The flick will follow Coe's famous rivalry with Steve Ovett and how it played into the 1980 Moscow Olympic games!
Could be amazeballz! We can't wait to see a trailer to get our DanRad fix!!
