Max Minghella is in talks to join Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming supernatural thriller Horns, Variety reports. Based on the novel by Joe Hill, the film will be directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D).
The novel is a love story driven by horror and vengeance that revolves around a 26-year-old man who wakes up one morning from a blackout hangover and finds horns sprouting out of his head. As the horns grow bigger by the day, the reason why seems to lie in the unsolved murder of his girlfriend.
Minghella, who will play a public defender named Lee Tourneau, is best known for roles in The Ides of March and The Social Network. He last appeared in The Darkest Hour and is currently shooting Shawn Levy’s The Internship.
