The Dark Knight Rises star Juno Temple is set to join Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming supernatural thriller Horns. Based on the novel by Joe Hill, the film will be directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D). Joe Anderson (The Grey) and Kelli Garner (Lars and the Real Girl) are said to be in talks to appear as well, as is Max Minghella (as reported earlier this week).
The film is a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance, follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes 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.
Horns is being directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension) from an adapted screenplay by Keith Bunin (“In Treatment”). Producers are Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland and Mandalay Pictures President Cathy Schulman. Joe Hill and Red Granite’s Joe Gatta are executive producers.
