‘Horns’ Lands Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, and Kelli Garner

Juno Temple joins the cast of HornsJuno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises, Atonement, Killer Joe), Joe Anderson (The Grey, Across the Universe, The Crazies) and Kelli Garner (The Aviator, Lars and the Real Girl, Bully) are the latest actors to board the supernatural fantasy/thriller Horns. The hot young trio are in advanced negotiations to star alongside Daniel Radcliffe. Max Minghella (The Social Network, The Ides of March) is also currently in negotiations for a key role in the film.

Horns is being co-produced and financed by Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland's Los Angeles based film production, finance and international sales company Red Granite Pictures. Red Granite will co-produce the film with Mandalay Pictures. Red Granite Pictures' international sales arm (Red Granite International), led by Danny Dimbort and Christian Mercuri, is handling foreign sales for the film and will begin discussions with international buyers in Toronto this week.

Based on the best-selling novel by Joe Hill, Horns is being directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, High Tension) from an adapted screenplay by Keith Bunin (In Treatment). Producers are Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland and Mandalay Pictures President Cathy Schulman. Joe Hill and Red Granite's Joe Gatta are executive producers.

Horns, a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance, follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses - an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend's tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.

This rock and roll infused dark fantasy explores why bad things happen to good people, and what the loss of true love can do to a man. The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times best seller list for six weeks, and has become an international bestseller as well.

Principal photography is slated to begin this fall.

Horns was released October 31st, 2014.
