MTV hit up Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival where they got him to speak briefly on his role in Alexandre Aja’s Horns, as well as his interest in Max Landis’ script for a Frankenstein film.
“A few weeks after we finished, I woke up one morning thinking, ‘What was that? What was that film I just did?’ It’s so crazy,” Radcliffe said of working on Horns, where he plays a man who 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. “I feel like I have less concept of what it’s going to be now than when I first started, which is bizarre, but it’s very exciting.”
Speaking on the bizarre aspects of the film, “I got to have burn make-up on, and then I got to come out of the Pacific Ocean after having been burned alive and drowned — and I survived that because I’m a boss.”
He also confirmed that he’s interest in working on Chronicle scribe Max Landis’ Frankenstein project, which would cast him in a hunchbacked, Igor-type role. “I love that script… but to say it’s in any way an adaptation of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” is probably [not accurate]. It’s a Max Landis script so anyone familiar with his work [will] have some sense of what that means.”
Horns is currently in post production.
