Daniel Radcliffe to turn to the dark side

Daniel Radcliffe is about to plunge into the dark side again.

Fresh off his horror hit The Woman In Black, Radcliffe will once again do his best to avoid typecasting by playing a suspected murderer and rapist in the movie, Horns.

Radcliffe signed onto the project Friday, the film's co-producers Red Granite and Mandalay Pictures said.

Based on a novel by Joe Hill, Horns follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), who not only wakes up with a raging hangover to find out he not only is suspected of murdering his girlfriend, but has a pair of horns growing out of his head. He discovers his new head-gear has the power to make people confess their sins and give-in to their most unspeakable impulses.

Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) will direct from an adapted screenplay by Keith Bunin (In Treatment).

Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, Mandalay Pictures President Cathy Schulman and Adam Stone will produce. Joe Hill and Red Granite's Joe Gatta are executive producers.

Principal photography is set to begin this fall. Red Granite Pictures' international sales arm will handle foreign sales for the film.
