New project: Daniel Radcliffe has signed on for Horns

Daniel has a new role in another thriller/fantasy movie! (I like that personally) Variety reports today that Dan has signed on for Horns which will be financed by Red Granite Pictures. Based on the novel by Joe Hill & will be directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D).

Daniel will portray the number one suspect (26 year old man) for the rape and murder of his girlfriend. He 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 impulses -- an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend's tragedy.

 Shooting is slated to begin this fall. Red Granite Pictures' international sales arm will handle foreign sales.

"After reading Joe Hill's cult book, I couldn't resist temptation to dive into the devilish underworld and reinvent a universal myth," Aja said.
