Dimension and RADiUS-TWC have partnered to acquire U.S. rights to Alexandre Aja’s horror-comedy “Horns,” starring Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple. The film, based on the novel by comic book author Joe Hill, premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
In the film, Radcliffe plays a small-town guy wrongly blamed for the death of his longtime girlfriend, who awakens one morning to find a pair of horns growing on his head.
“I enjoyed working with Alex Aja on ‘Piranha 3D,'” said TWC co-chairman Bob Weinstein. “I think he’s made a masterful film
in ‘Horns,’ and I’m thrilled to continue our relationship.”
Added RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason
Janego: “‘Horns’ is a devillish wild ride. Visionary director Alexandre Aja delivers
one of the coolest and most daring genre titles we’ve seen in
quite some time.”
Dimension/RADiUS have slated a 2014 theatrical release.
