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.”
