The Hulu pilot directed by IT filmmaker Andy Muschietti will be scrapped and recast
Fans of Daniel Radcliffe from his days playing Harry Potter may be surprised to see him go “full Slytherin” for Alexandre (The Hills Have Eyes) Aja’s Horns, based on the Joe Hill novel.
That’s pretty much what he does while playing Ig, a young man accused of murdering his girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) who starts growing horns and affecting those around him to reveal their darkest secrets. As the horns grow, Ig is able to use his newfound powers (and the numerous large snakes that follow him around) to try to learn the truth about what happened to Merrin.
Earlier this week, ShockTillYouDrop.com had a chance to talk with Radcliffe about his second foray into horror following 2012’s The Woman in Black, as well as getting some idea what to expect from his turn as Igor in next October’s Victor Frankenstein.
Joe Hill can’t say much about Darkside, his retooling of the ’80s anthology horror television series, but he can continue to hint at the direction he’s taking with the show.
Shock spoke to the writer of Locke & Key and Horns at Comic-Con to get an update and he said things are moving along nicely. Previous reports have said that Hill will be overseeing a stable of contributing writers and will creatively guide the show.
