After the box office success of Gothic ghost story “The Woman in Black,” it makes sense that Harry-Potter-no-more Daniel Radcliffe is attached to star in another supernatural thriller, “Horns,” from director Alexander Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes”).
“Horns” is based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill. It follows a young man (Radcliffe) who is fingered as suspect No. 1 for the rape and murder of his girlfriend. When he awakens one morning to discover Lucifer-like horns growing out of his forehead, he slowly understands he has the power to drive people to dark confessions. This works out well for him as he’s able to free himself from the accusations and go looking for the true killer.
Red Granite Pictures and Mandalay Pictures will co-produce; production is set to kick off this fall.
