Daniel Radcliffe is set to deliver his most morbid performance yet, as a corpse in the upcoming film Swiss Army Man.

Created by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Swiss Army Man sees a man played by Paul Dano on a deserted island, whose only company is a dead body, portrayed by Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. It is the first feature-length film for the pair and will debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The movie follows a similar theme to Tom Hank's iconic movie, Cast Away - except instead of Wilson the volleyball, Dano will be acting alongside Radcliffe's lifeless corpse.

Sundance kicked off today in Utah and will run until the end of the month.
