    Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is to be sent down into the trenches for his next film role.

    The Jewish actor, 20, will attempt to shake off his teenage wizard image in a remake of First World War classic All Quiet On The Western Front.

    The actor, who comes from London and is currently wowing audiences on a Broadway stage, will play a young German soldier in the film.

    The original, based on a book, was released in 1930 and won an Oscar for the director.

    Producer Ian Stokell said the actor would bring a vulnerability and innocence to the part.

    He said: "When we realised how much he loved the script , we were really excited."

    This will not be Daniel’s first foray into a film set during a war. In 2009 the actor narrated The Legacy of Hope, a Holocaust memorial film marking the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
