First Look at Daniel Radcliffe in Horns

It seems to be that Daniel Radcliffe likes a bit of darkness. Every Harry Potter was announced to be darker than the last, then he follows that up with The Woman in Black and now he’s in a strange and devilish film called Horns.

Based on the book by Joe Hill, Horns is about a man named Ig who spends the night doing terrible things and wakes up to one hell of a hangover and a pair of horns growing from his forehead.

The horns also come with a strange power to force people to confess their darkest sins and Ig is going to use this power to find the killer of his girlfriend.

Whilst talking to MTV about the film Radcliffe had more than a few positive words to say about the script:

“The script is so good, the story… There’s nothing really, I think, that can be so exciting to an actor as an original idea. It’s an original idea that’s tackled in an original, fresh and vibrant way.

There are opportunities, especially at the beginning of the script, for some very dark humour. It’s a script that, as it goes on, becomes really very emotional. It has the potential to be very moving and kind of heartbreaking, really.”

The film is being directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) and is currently in pre-production. It is due for release next year.
