This news is just out: Daniel is executive producer of a new documentary called David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived about the extraordinary story of his stunt double, David Holmes who worked with him on Harry Potter and was seriously injuted while filming a scene for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows back in 2009. Produced by HBO Documentary Film in association with Sky, a Lightbox / Ripple Production.

It's coming to on demand on HBO on 15th November, and will be available to stream on Max, (US) and on Sky Documentaries and streaming service NOW on 18th November (UK).

The world premiere takes place at DOC:NYC Festival on 13th November. The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and special guests director Dan Hartley, subject David Holmes, editor Kevin Konak, and special guest Daniel Radcliffe.

From the press release, synopsis:

The film is a coming-of-age story of stuntman David Holmes, a prodigious teenage gymnast from Essex, England, who is selected to play Daniel Radcliffe’s stunt double in the first Harry Potter film, when Daniel is just eleven. Over the next ten years, the two form an inextricable bond, but on the penultimate film a tragic accident on set leaves David paralysed with a debilitating spinal injury, turning his world upside down. As Daniel and his closest stunt colleagues rally to support David and his family in their moment of need, it is David’s extraordinary spirit of resilience that becomes their greatest source of strength and inspiration.

Featuring candid personal footage shot over the last decade, behind-the-scenes material from Holmes’ stunt work, scenes of his current life and intimate interviews with David, Daniel Radcliffe, friends, family, and former crew, the film also reflects universal themes of living with adversity, growing up, forging identities in an uncertain world, and the bonds that bind us together and lift us up.
