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 Kathleen Quinlan. The film is based on the novel by comic book author Joe Hill. Keith Bunin wrote the screenplay.
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 (High Tension, Piranha 3D).
Dimension/RADiUS have slated a 2014 theatrical release.
TWC Co-Chairman Bob Weinstein had this to say in a brief statement.
"I enjoyed working with Alex Aja on PPiranha 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 released their own joint statement.
"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."
Tom Quinn and Jason Janego negotiated the deal with Red Granite Pictures' David Boyle and Randy Hermann and WME Global.
