Daniel Radcliffe Is Feeling Horny In First Shot From Aja's Latest

Sometimes the headline write themselves ...

The former boy wizard, Daniel Radcliffe, plays the lead in Alexandre Aja's next - an adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns. Yes, the horns are literal. Yes, Radcliffe sprouts them. And there they are now, growing out of his head. This is the latest in a string of interesting choices the post-Potter Radcliffe has made and I'm intrigued to see how it works out. If nothing else it's something for Aja that - finally - isn't another remake. Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner also star.

Here's a synopsis for the source novel:

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples. At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world. But there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real.

The only suspect in Merrin's murder, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. In the court of public opinion in Gideon, New Hampshire, Ig is and always will be guilty because his rich and connected parents pulled strings to make the investigation go away. Nothing Ig can do, nothing he can say, matters. Everyone, it seems, including God, has abandoned him. Everyone, that is, but the devil inside. . . . Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look--a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge. . . . It's time the devil had his due. . .
