Since the end of Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe has been busy showing us he’s not really a teenage wizard, and while he still looked a tad schoolboy-like in Woman In Black, he’s certainly looking a lot more grown up in the first picture from Horns (and of course, he’s got horns growing out of his head).
Based on the best-selling novel by Joe Hill and directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) from a screenplay by Keith Bunin (In Treatment), Horns is a supernatural thriller that follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno 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.
It certainly sounds like an interesting role for radcliffe, and we have to say that he looks kind of cool with horns on his head. The actor comments, “It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before. To play somebody who, in the midst of a time in his life of great turmoil anyway, undergoes this horrific transformation into a devil character – it was very, very exciting.” (Image via EW)
