Wondering just where the hell Alexandre Aja’s Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe is? Well, it sounds as if digital effects company Newbreed may have bitten off a bit more than they can chew with the project.
According to The Wrap, the struggling visual effects studio will have to ship out work on the upcoming horror film to another company. Horns producers Mandalay Pictures and Red Granite Pictures have yet to decide what company will be awarded the additional work.
The Montreal-based Newbreed is enduring a severe cash crunch as it tries to refinance its debt, according to an individual with knowledge of the company’s finances. The cash flow difficulties have left many Newbreed employees unpaid for weeks and resulted in an exodus of talent.
Mandalay Pictures’ Horns stars Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Juno Temple, James Remar, Joe Anderson, and Kelli Garner. Based on the best-selling novel by Joe Hill, Horns is directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, High Tension) from an adapted screenplay by Keith Bunin (“In Treatment”). Producers are Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, and Mandalay Pictures President Cathy Schulman. Joe Hill and Red Granite’s Joe Gatta are executive producers.
Horns, a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery, and romance, follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig 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 most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
This rock and roll infused dark fantasy explores why bad things happen to good people and what the loss of true love can do to a man. The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times bestseller list for six weeks and has become an international bestseller as well.
