Shia LaBeouf (Transformers, Disturbia) is attached to star in Mandalay Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of Joe Hill’s best-selling novel Horns, and will also be closely involved in the project’s development, reports Variety.
Keith Bunin (In Treatment) is adapting the book, which is described as a love story driven by horror and vengeance.
“LaBeouf will play Ig Perrish, a 26-year-old who awakens from a black-out hangover to find horns sprouting from his head. As his horns grow bigger, Ig sets out to investigate the unsolved murder of his girlfriend and the case’s connection to his cursed fate.”
Hill, the son of Stephen King, will exec produce “Horns,” having optioned the rights to Mandalay in October 2009 before the book was published by William Morrow. He also write the mind-bending comic series “Locke & Key”, which is being filmed as a pilot as we speak.
