New York, NY (October 4, 2013) –  Dimension and RADiUS-TWC are proud to announce they’ve acquired US rights to Alexandre Aja’s HORNS starring Daniel Radcliffe that celebrated its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.  Radcliffe leads a top notch ensemble cast that includes Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Heather Graham, David Morse, Kathleen Quinlan and James Remar.  The film is based on the novel by comic book author Joe Hill.  Keith Bunin wrote the screenplay.

HORNS was produced by Red Granite Pictures founders and producing partners Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland in addition to Mandalay’s Cathy Shulman.  Alexandre Aja is also a producer.

Blamed for the death of his longtime girlfriend (Temple), a small-town guy (Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find a pair of horns growing from his head in this supernatural thriller from horror ace Alexandre Aja (HAUTE TENSION, PIRANHA 3D).

Dimension/RADiUS have slated a 2014 theatrical release.

According to TWC Co-Chairman Bob Weinstein:  “I enjoyed working with Alex Aja on PIRANHA 3D. I think he’s made a masterful film in HORNS, and I’m thrilled to continue our relationship.”

RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego go on to say:  “HORNS is a devillish wild ride.  Visionary director Alexandre Aja delivers one of the coolest and most daring genre titles we’ve seen in quite some time.  While Daniel Radcliffe’s flawless turn as “IG” is sure to go down as one of the great anti-heroes of all time.  We couldn’t be more excited to work with Alexandre, Joe, Riza, Joey and Cathy on this terrific film.”

 Quinn and Janego negotiated the deal with Red Granite Pictures’ David Boyle and Randy Hermann and WME Global.
