Max Minghella in talks to grow ‘Horns’

Thesp would star with Radcliffe in thriller

On the heels of prominent roles in “The Social Network” and “The Ides of March,” Max Minghella has entered talks to star opposite Daniel Radcliffe in director Alexandre Aja’s supernatural thriller “Horns,” which financier Red Granite Pictures is co-producing with Mandalay Pictures.

Scribe Keith Bunin (“In Treatment”) adapted Joe Hill’s novel.

Radcliffe will play Ig Perrish, who awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his head. He 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 truth about his late girlfriend’s murder.

Minghella is in negotiations to play Lee Tourneau, a public defender with a hidden dark side.

Red Granite’s Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland are producing with Mandalay’s Cathy Schulman and Adam Stone. Hill and Red Granite’s Joe Gatta will exec produce.

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

Minghella, who recently wrapped the lead role in Joe Johnston’s low-budget Universal thriller “Not Safe for Work,” is currently filming Shawn Levy’s Fox comedy “The Internship” with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Thesp recently starred opposite Emile Hirsch in “The Darkest Hour,” and he’ll next be seen alongside Channing Tatum in the high school reunion pic “10 Years.”

Minghella is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman.
