Dan Radcliffe to star in new fantasy movie “Horns”; Emma Watson shooting ‘Noah’ on Long Island
Harry Potter star Dan Radcliffe has chosen his next role, and this time it’s another fantasy film, but nothing like Harry Potter. Dan will play the lead role in an adaptation of Joe Hill’s (son of Stephen King) book, Horns.
Dan has been case in the role of Ig Perrish, the primary suspect in the investigation of his girlfriend’s brutal rape and murder. The fantasy aspect comes into play when Ig wakes up from a night of drinking only to find a set of horns growing out of his head. The horns on Ig’s head come with a special ability, though. They make people confess to their sins and give in to selfish impulses, something he uses to his advantage in looking for his girlfriend.
As for Emma Watson: Noah director, Darren Aronofsky, is in the middle of building the massive set of Noah’s ark on Long Island, New York, and will be holding open casting calls for extras Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (today) at The Greek Orthodox Church of Holy Resurrection in Brookville, with a specification of “men and women with toned-slender runner’s bodies, who are willing to work at night in the rain.”
“We’re shooting in Oyster Bay, Long Island,” a Paramount spokeswoman told Newsday. Confirmed cast includes Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth.
Noah, is scheduled for release March 28, 2014.
