According to Variety, Daniel Radcliffe is going to star in Horns based on the novel by Joe Hill. The film will be directed by Alexandre Aja, adapted by Keith Bunin with Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, Cathy Schulman and Adam Stone producing. Joe Hill and Joe Gatta are executive producers.
Daniel Radcliffe’s character is described as the number one suspect for the rape and murder of his girlfriend.
Merrin Williams is dead, slaughtered under inexplicable circumstances, leaving her beloved boyfriend Ignatius Perrish as the only suspect. On the first anniversary of Merrin’s murder, Ig spends the night drunk and doing awful things. When he wakes the next morning he has a thunderous hangover . . . and horns growing from his temples. Ig possesses a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look—a macabre gift he intends to use to find the monster who killed his lover. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. Now it’s time for revenge . . .
It’s time the devil had his due. . . .
Shooting is going to begin in the fall, the film is going to be financed by Red Granite Pictures and they will do co-production with Mandalay Pictures. Once more information about the film is out I will let everyone know!
