Jesse Eisenberg Will Kill Your Darlings


Adventureland star Jesse Eisenberg will play poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, an ensemble film about the murder that helped spawn the Beat Generation.

Chris Evans and Ben Whishaw will also star in the movie, which is directed by newcomer John Krokidas, who wrote the script with his onetime Yale roommate Austin Bunn.

Whishaw will play Lucien Carr, the Columbia University undergrad who brought together Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac (Evans) and William S. Burroughs.
