Daniel Radcliffe To Star In Film Adaptation of Joe Hill's 'Horns'
Daniel Radcliffe—best known for playing Harry Potter and romping around naked with a horse in Equus—will be taking the lead in the film based on Joe Hill's 2010 international bestseller Horns. Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, Mirrors) is directing.
Radcliffe plays Ignatius, a man accused of killing his girlfriend. On the first anniversary of her death, Ig gets completely wasted...as you do when all your friends think you're a murder and rapist. When he wakes up, he has developed horns and the power to make people confess to things they'd rather not say. And by that, I mean serious sin type stuff, not "I can't stop staring at your unibrow" type stuff. In short, his morning-after makes any pain you've ever had after a big night look like Baby's First Hangover by Playskool.
Horns was Joe Hill's second novel. The author, who comes from the solid writerly stock of Stephen and Tabitha King, discusses his book in this video:
I read Hill's first book but haven't gotten around to Horns yet. Have you guys read it? If so, does Radcliffe seem like a good choice for the lead?
