Max Minghella Trying On Horns

Now that it has a confirmed star in the shape of Daniel Radcliffe, Alexandre Aja’s long-gestating adaptation of Joe Hill’s horror novel Horns is starting to gather other actors for the cast. Max Minghella is now in talks to sign on.

Radcliffe is set to play the book’s central figure, Ig Perrish, who wakes up one morning after a drunken bender to discover he has red horns growing out of his forehead. He soon learns that they hold the power to make everyone around him confess their innermost sins and darkest desires, which helps as he investigates the rape and murder of his girlfriend.

If he makes a deal, Minghella will be Lee Tourneau, a political aide and old friend of Ig’s who has become distant since the murder of Ig’s girlfriend Merrin.

With a script by Keith Bunin, Aja is slated to start shooting this autumn. We’re watching this one closely, as the source material is a superb, dark thriller.

Minghella, who was last seen in The Darkest Hour, will next show up in Not Safe For Work and Shawn Levy’s latest comedy The Internship

Actually he's more like the young Hellboy at the start of Hellboy 2 when I think about it. I think any one not totally aware of the genesis of hellboy will see visual similarities between him and Ig More

RE: Hell, boy!
L: Invader_Ace Really enjoyed the book a lot and thought it would make for a good film.  Not feeling Radcliffe as Ig though. sp; Agree to both parts.  Ig always struck me as the average blue-collar kinda guy, with a much more physical presence than Radcliffe.  Someone like Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam would be ideal for the role IMO.   A bit confused about the looking like Hellboy comment - one is a large red hell-born demon with a tail, stone hand More

Hell, boy!
They are going to need to make Ig look not-like-Hellboy for this one. Great book though. More
