Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), Joe Anderson (The Crazies) and Kelli Garner (The Aviator) are the latest actors to board the supernatural fantasy/thriller Horns, according to Variety. They join the already cast Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella.
Based on the best-selling novel by Joe Hill, Horns is set to be directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) from a screenplay by Keith Bunin (In Treatment). The movie is a supernatural thriller that follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple).
Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realises their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times best seller list for six weeks, and has become an international bestseller. Principal photography is slated to begin this fall.
