Hopefully this isn’t a permanent affliction for the director of Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, and Piranha 3D. We can’t imagine waking up one day and … Huh? Oh. Never mind. Another adaptation is on its way!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Alexandre Aja is teaming up with scary storyteller Joe Hill on the feature adaptation of Hill’s novel Horns, being made by Mandalay Pictures.
Aja is coming on board to direct the project about a 26-year-old man who wakes up with a massive hangover and discovers horns sprouting from his head. He becomes convinced that their existence is tied to the unsolved murder of his girlfriend.
Scott Bunin wrote the script adaptation of the novel, which was published in February 2010. Hill, also the writer of the horror comic book series Locke & Key and the son of author Stephen King, is executive producing.
Mandate is packaging the project and is in the middle of securing financing. The goal is to have Aja direct the movie in late spring or early summer 2012 before moving on to Cobra, a sci-fi pirate movie based on manga source material.
