The Boy Who Lived is now the boy who might have killed (not quite so catchy, we know).
It’s hardly a mistake that Daniel Radcliffe is a million miles away from Harry Potter in his new movie. Since the final film in the franchise, the 24-year-old actor has purposefully chosen diverse roles that prove he can play more than a wand-wielding teenage wizard.
And this latest role is no exception.
Though, having said that, we did notice a few similarities between this front cover and a few from Harry Potter…
Horns sees Radcliffe play Ig Perrish, a man accused of the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend Merrin Wililams (Juno Temple). After a night of heavy drinking, Ig wakes up to find horns growing out of his head – horns which make people confess their sins – and so embarks on a mission to find Merrin’s true murderer.
Directed by Alexandra Aja, Horns is based on Joe Hill’s dark fantasy novel and also stars Max Minghella, Heather Graham and David Morse.
