Opening this week in limited release is director John Krokidas’ Kill Your Darlings.  The film focuses on the origins of the Beat movement and follows the volatile friendships of Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster), and Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan).  There’s also a murder wrapped in between the lines. Kill Your Darlings also stars Michael C. HallDavid CrossKyra SedgwickJennifer Jason Leigh, and Elizabeth Olsen.  I caught the pic at Sundance and it was one of my favorites of the festival.  In addition, the entire cast was fantastic and Krokidas announces himself as a serious talent to watch.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review or read all of our previous coverage.

Last week I landed an exclusive interview with Radcliffe.  He talked about making the film on a limited budget and not much time, working with the rest of the cast, how it compared to making the Harry Potter movies, what he learned about the beat movement, having the film play at both Sundance and Toronto, and more.  In addition, I asked if he’d be willing to do some kind of easter egg like walking in the background of a scene when Warner Bros. makes the Harry Potter spin-off movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

The indie dramedy Afternoon Delight tells the story of Rachel (Kathryn Hahn), an affluent, stay-at-home, thirty-something mom who’s feeling disconnected from her husband (Josh Radnor).  When she visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and gets a private lap dance from McKenna (Juno Temple), she soon becomes obsessed with saving her, even going so far as to make her a live-in nanny, which can’t possibly turn out well for anyone involved.

At the film’s press day, actress Juno Temple spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about playing such fascinating and fearless young women, how fully realized this character was, the importance of having a female writer/director (Jill Soloway) on this film, and how she likes taking roles in movies that make you think afterwards.  She also talked about her work in Horns, and how she can’t wait for people to see the finished product and Daniel Radcliffe’s performance in it.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

We’ve got a few interesting set photos to share this afternoon.  Briefly:

  • The Hangover Part III – We previously knew that director Todd Phillips’ trilogy closer would at least be spending some time in Las Vegas, and this image shows Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms filming scenes inside Caesar’s Palace.
  • Dom Hemingway – Star Jude Law is looking plenty intimidating as the lead opposite Madalina Ghenea in this crime comedy about a safe-cracker who gets out of prisoner and sets out to obtain what he’s owed.
  • HornsDaniel Radcliffe stars as a young man who wakes up to find himself accused of the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend and sprouting horns on his head.  Harry Potter looks sufficiently troublesome in these set photos as fights back against a couple of cops.

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.
