Max Minghella is slowly building a very strong career with the likes of The Social Network and The Ides Of March (let’s ignore the abysmal Darkest Hour), and he’ll be hoping he can build on that with Horns, as he’s now in talks to join the cast.
The film is about Ig Perrish, a role Daniel Radcliffe took in July, who’s a seemingly ordinary man who wakes up one morning and discovers horns are growing out of his head. He comes to learn that these powerful appendages make people confess their sins to him, a tool he decides to use in figuring out the mysterious death of his girlfriend. Max Minghella is in talks to play Lee Tourneau, a district attorney who is hiding a secret past.
Alexandre Aja is directing from a screenplay by Keith Bunin, which he adapted from Joe Hill’s novel (who is, incidentally, Stephen King’s son). Shooting will begin later this autumn. (Source: Variety)
