Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, and Kelli Garner in Talks to Join Daniel Radcliffe in Fantasy Thriller HORNS

     September 7, 2012


Just yesterday we learned that The Social Network star Max Minghella was in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe in the supernatural fantasy thriller Horns.  Now three more names are looking to be added to the cast, as Variety reports that Juno Temple (Killer Joe), Joe Anderson (The Grey) and Kelli Garner (Lars and the Real Girl, Pan Am) are in talks to sign on.  To be directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes), the film is based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill and centers on Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend.  He wakes one morning to find horns growing from his head, appendages that have the ability to force confessions from strangers, which aids him in his quest to find the real killer and exact his revenge.

Temple, who was seen this summer in The Dark Knight Rises, is in advanced negotiations to take on the girlfriend role in this fairly crazy-sounding pic.  No word on who Anderson or Garner would play, but production is set to get underway this fall.

    Wow *fantastic* casting. Radcliffe is an incredibly inspired choice for Ig. Anyone who has the read the awesome book knows exactly who these other fine young actors will play. Anderson would play Lee Tourneau, one of the best villains in recent fiction. Garner will play Igs somewhat slutty friend. There are only two other major characters. It’s a great, tight story perfect for cinema.

      Derp. Except Anthony Minghella was cast as Lee two days ago, you super-genius. Durka Durka Durka, Mohammed Jihad.

        *Max, I mean. Derpa, derpa, derp.

        I stand humbly corrected. Derp.

    I’m guessing Temple will play Ig’s CURRENT girlfriend/friend Glenna and that Garner will play his murdered girlfriend Merrin. Garner seems much more suited to play the red-haired Merrin, while Temple while have much more fun in the role of the trashy friend.
