First Look at Daniel Radcliffe in Horns

From Flicksandbits.com:

EW has revealed this first official look at Daniel Radcliffe in the fantasy/thriller ‘Horns.’  Directed by Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, High Tension) and based on Joe Hill’s popular novel of the same name, ‘Horns’ follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend. Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.

Speaking to EW, Daniel Radcliffe describes his new role as, “deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some ways.” On the opportunity of playing Ig, Radcliffe says, “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.” The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times best seller list for six weeks, and has become an international bestseller as well. The likes of Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Max Minghella and James Remar also star in ‘Horns.’ Expect a release schedule announcement shortly. The synopsis for Joe Hill’s novel can be read below

 

The New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box returns with a relentless supernatural thriller that runs like Hell on wheels . . . Merrin Williams is dead, slaughtered under inexplicable circumstances, leaving her beloved boyfriend Ignatius Perrish as the only suspect. On the first anniversary of Merrin’s murder, Ig spends the night drunk and doing awful things. When he wakes the next morning he has a thunderous hangover . . . and horns growing from his temples. Ig possesses a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look—a macabre gift he intends to use to find the monster who killed his lover. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. Now it’s time for revenge . . . It’s time the devil had his due . . . .

In the Tall Grass UK Audiobook

From the press release:

Hachette sister companies The Orion Publishing Group and Hodder & Stoughton are thrilled to be jointly publishing a brand new, and terrifying, story written by bestselling authors Stephen King and Joe Hill.

In The Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another, while the boy's cries are growing more and more desperate . . . 

What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

‘I loved working with Joe. Our styles mesh pretty well. Maybe it's the similar DNA. Certainly we feed on each other's energy, and as the old man of the combo, I'm impressed with Joe's narrative drive and narrative clarity. Working with your kid is an amazing gift.’ – Stephen King

‘Working with my Dad is like buckling up for a ride in the meanest, fastest, baddest eighteen-wheeler on the roads. He's got a V12 engine under the hood; all the rest of us writer-types are stuck with little sewing machine motors. Been learning from him my whole life and I doubt I've picked up a tenth of what he knows.’ – Joe Hill

Originally an Esquire magazine exclusive, this story will be released as audio download and eBook original on the 9th October. The eBook will retail for £1.99 and the audio book for £9.99. It’s a must-read for fans of either author and, even more excitingly, the eBook includes an exclusive extract of Joe Hill’s forthcoming novel NOS4R2, and an extract of Stephen King’s forthcoming novel Doctor Sleep.

This thrilling collaboration of King and Hill will be supported by an exciting collaborative marketing and publicity campaign from both publishers.

‘In the Tall Grass is a brilliant, scary and suspenseful short story from two great writing talents. We are delighted in turn to combine the creative expertise of two great publishing houses to promote this terrific collaboration’ - say joint editors Philippa Pride at Hodder and Gillian Redfearn at Orion.
