Daniel Radcliffe Showcases His HORNS
First look at Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish in Mandalay Picture's adaptation of comic book writer Joe Hill's novel, Horns. Does the first official look at Radcliffe pique your interest?
It's expected that given the subject matter, the film will have a hard R-rating. The lead role of Ig Perrish is said to be a definite departure from Radcliffe's most famous role, Harry Potter. "“It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before,” said Radlciffe. He goes on to describe the film as "“deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some ways. To play somebody who, in the midst of a time in his life of great turmoil anyway, undergoes this horrific transformation into a devil character — it was very, very exciting.”
Horns is a 2010 dark fantasy novel by Joe Hill and is the author's second published novel. The novel also incorporates elements of contemporary fantasy, crime fiction, and Gothic fiction. It employs the third-person omniscient, nonlinear narrative in telling the story of Ig Perrish, who—in the aftermath of his girlfriend Merrin Williams' mysterious rape and murder—awakes one morning to find horns growing from his head and diabolical powers at his command.
