Daniel Radcliffe Locks Horns





Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe Signed to The Woman in BlackHot off The Woman in Black, it's nice to see star Daniel Radcliffe eager to continue his exploration of the genre. Today we've got word that the man who was Harry Potter has signed on to star in one hell of a movie adaptation.

Variety is reporting that Radcliffe will take center stage in Horns, a satanic horror film directed by Alexandre Aja and sourced from Joe Hill's novel of the same name.

Radcliffe's role will be that of a man suspected in the rape and murder of his girlfriend. One morning he awakens to find horns growing from his head and realizes their power drives people to confess their sins while succumbing to their impulses. He'll of course use this to his advantage as he hunts for the real murderer.

Shooting will begin this fall so you can expect to hear much more about this as it develops. I'm just glad Aja has decided to do something that isn't a remake for once.

I liked Joe Hill's first few efforts, alas Horns sees him becoming his father. The book is poorly paced often rambles and has a forced mystical ending that is entirely unsatisfying.

It would take a talented director/screenwriter to salvage a workable story from the aimless novel. Something like what Romero did for King's 'The Dark Half.'

The book is a solid, compelling read with extremely well drawn out characters. I think Radcliffe could pull it off, but there is a definite danger of overacting. I mean, it is some weird and heavy stuff that goes on in the story. He is also going to be very dependent on his co-stars, more-so than he was in Woman in Black which could be a good or bad thing.

Nice to see that he is really embracing horror though. I hope that it is not just a desire to separate himself from his "Harry Potter" image, but either way, it is cool to see a well known actor really embracing the genre.

Im actually looking forward to a sequal. The original was better than I thought itd be.
