First look at Daniel Radcliffe in Horns

Complete with, er, horns

The first image has emerged from Alexandre Aja’s Horns, in which Daniel Radcliffe shows off his prosthetic head-adornments for the very first time.

Adapted by the novel of the same name by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King), Horns is a supernatural thriller telling the story of Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the prime suspect for the rape and murder of his girlfriend.

One morning, Ig awakens to discover a pair of horns growing from his head, granting him the power to drive people to confess their sins. A handy tool when trying to find his girlfriend’s real killer.

“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,” says Radcliffe.

As you can see from the first image, there’s no shying away from those prosthetics, particularly when they’re sprouting bloodily from a pair of oozing holes on his forehead. No wonder he looks a bit peaky…

Check out the image in full below:



Co-starring Juno Temple, Max Minghella, James Remar and Kelli Garner, Horns will open in the UK at some point in 2013.

      It looks like Damien is posing for a fashion magazine.

      Sounds like a cool premise. But it also sounds vaguely similar to the Jim Sturgess film Heartless. A mix of The Fugitive with Ghost Rider.

      Radcliffe does at least appear to be picking interesting projects post-potter. I reckon he's going to have a good and long career ahead of him.......plus i really like that Jacket he's wearing.
