Holy Crap, It’s Daniel Radcliffe With ‘Horns’!

Horror fav Alex Aja (High Tension, Mirrors, Piranha 3D) is finally back behind cameras with Horns, an adaptation of Joe Hill’s story that will star Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner and James Remar.

EW has landed the first teaser image that shows us our first look at The Woman in Black star Radcliffe with a pair of horns. “It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before,” teases Radcliffe. Today marked the first time the actor settled into a Vancouver makeup chair for several hours of prosthetics application.

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.

He describes his new role as “deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some ways.” Says Radcliffe, “To play somebody who, in the midst of a time in his life of great turmoil anyway, undergoes this horrific transformation into a devil character — it was very, very exciting.

    I’ll be honest, I’m mega stoked for this because Aja is directing…

    Alex is a good director. I’ll give it a look.

      It’s not an original project. It’s based on the novel “Horns” by Joe Hill, who is also Stephen King’s son. Great book though. I wish they’d make his first novel, “Heart-Shaped Box” into a movie. I prefer it to Horns but I’m still excited for this!

        Trace, what i meant is at least this is not a remake or a sequel. with Aja having done 3 remakes/”re-imaginings” (or whatever! lol) i’m thrilled he’s doing a project that hasn’t already been a movie. but yeah, i’m with you, i’m very excited for this. Aja is one of my favorite directors! HIGH TENSION is in my top 10 favorite movies ever! HILLS was an excellent remake. P3D was a lot of fun. MIRRORS was shot beautifully but was pretty bad.

        I think this will open up the opportunity for Heart Shaped Box. Some company did buy up the rights (forgive me, can’t remember who, not worried enough to look) and they’ve just been sitting on it. Horns was a strong book, probably stronger emotionally than HSB was, I bet it will open a lot of doors.

    Aja is usually great but i’m not quite sure Radcliffe is right for the part after reading the (excellent) book. but i’ll prob still be there opening night

    Daniel Radcliffe always surprises me. I was kind of worried when Woman in Black came out that my unabashed appreciation of the Potter books had blinded me to a bad actor (December boys was no real treat) but I think he’s just going to join a long line of kids who love to do Horror flicks, and that rocks.
