[San Diego Comic-Con ’12] Daniel Radcliffe Grows ‘Horns’ For Alex Aja Horror


While Shia LaBeouf was originally named to star, Variety reveals that Harry Potter and The Woman in Black‘s Daniel Radcliffe (pictured) has signed on to topline the supernatural fantasy/thriller Horns.

Based on the novel by Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son), Horns is being directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors, Piranha 3D). Horns has been adapted by Keith Bunin (In Treatment).

Radcliffe will portray the number one suspect for the rape and murder of his girlfriend. He awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their impulses — an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy.

Shooting is slated to begin this fall.

Pic will be financed by Red Granite Pictures. Red Granite will co-produce the film with Mandalay Pictures. Producers are Red Granite’s Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland, Mandalay Pictures president Cathy Schulman and Adam Stone. Joe Hill and Red Granite’s Joe Gatta are executive producers.

  • I’m glad they got rid of Shia LaBeouf. Daniel will be an interesting choice for this. Can’t wait til a trailer comes out. Hope it’s faithful to the book.
