Daniel Radcliffe Might Play Allen Ginsberg in KILL YOUR DARLINGS

     November 29, 2011


Daniel Radcliffe is in talks to play Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the thriller” Kill Your Darlings.  Radcliffe told the French press [via Twitch] that he would “very likely” be playing the literary figure for a film, which would be released in 2012.  Twitch did a little more digging and found that after Radcliffe finishes his Broadway run on How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, he’ll move on to play Ginsberg in Darlings.  Written and directed by John Krokidas, the movie revolves around the relationship between Ginsberg, influential authors Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs, and the man who brought them together, Lucien Carr.  What makes the movie into a thriller is that Carr served time in 1944 for the murder of his lover, David Kammerer.

The project was first announced back in 2009 with Chris Evans, Jesse Eisenberg, and Ben Whishaw attached to play Kerouac, Ginsberg and Carr, respectively.  Obviously, Eisenberg is out, and it’s unknown if Evans and Whishaw are still on board.  Radcliffe will next be seen in the gothic thriller The Woman in Black.
