It was some time ago that Mandalay Pictures first announced their plans to develop Joe Hill’s novel, Horns, into a feature film. Today, The Hollywood Reporter has word that Alexandre Aja has signed on to direct.
The novel, released last year, is a horror love story about a young man named Ig Perrish who wakes up one day to find that horns have grown from his head. What’s more, they’re still growing and are somehow tied to the unsolved murder of his girlfriend.
Shia LaBeouf was, earlier this year, attached to the role of Perrish, but there’s no confirmation yet as to whether or not he’s still involved.
Aja recently directed Piranha and is known for his past horror efforts such as Mirrors, The Hills Have Eyes and High Tension.
