Daniel Radcliffe to star in ‘Horns’

Actor signs up for Red Granite's supernatural thriller

Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to star in supernatural fantasy/thriller “Horns.”

Pic will be financed by Red Granite Pictures. Red Granite will co-produce the film with Mandalay Pictures.

Based on the novel by Joe Hill, “Horns” is being directed by Alexandre Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes,” “Piranha 3D”).

“Horns” has been adapted by Keith Bunin (“In Treatment”).

Producers are Red Granite’s Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland, Mandalay Pictures president Cathy Schulman and Adam Stone. Joe Hill and Red Granite’s Joe Gatta are executive producers.

Radcliffe will portray the number one suspect 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.

Radcliffe starred earlier this year in “The Woman in Black” in his first role following the conclusion of the eight Harry Potter films last year.

Red Granite is also producing “The Wolf of Wall Street” with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way, Alexandra Milchan’s Emjag and Martin Scorsese’s Sikelia Productions. DiCaprio is starring and Scorsese will direct. It also teamed with Point West Prods. and Locomotive to produce romantic comedy “Friends with Kids.”

Radcliffe is repped by UTA, attorney Fred Toczek and Artists Rights Group in the UK.
