Hill’s HORNS To Movies

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black) has just signed for the lead in the film adaptation of Joe Hill’s 2010 supernatural horror novel, Horns, directed by Alexandre Aja. At the time it was published, Time magazine called Hill “one of America’s finest horror writers,” based on “the strength of two masterly thrillers – 2007′s Heart-Shaped Box and his newest, Horns.”

On his Web site, Hill expresses his excitement, saying he is “amped beyond all rational measure. I could not be happier about the casting of Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish. My fanboy feelings for the Harry Potter pictures are well-established, but aside from that, I thought Woman in Black was one of the best horror films of the last decade, and the picture worked because of Radcliffe’s quietly focused performance. I hope HORNS serves the kid just as well.”

The film is scheduled to begin shooting this fall, with a likely release date sometime in 2013.
