Daniel Radcliffe Is The Devil — At Least In A Movie

Wait! Before you start burning all your copies of Harry Potter, hear us out. Daniel Radcliffe isn't actually the Devil. Let's just get that out of the way. But, the 24-year-old former boy wizard might be playing the Prince of Darkness in an upcoming movie. Horns is a pitch black comedy in which Radcliffe stars as a man who may have killed his girlfriend (Juno Temple). Either way, he wakes up one morning and notices a pair of devilish-looking horns protruding from his head.

Directed by Alexandre Aja and based on the acclaimed fantasy novel by Joe Hill, Horns had its premiere at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, where it was met with mixed reviews. Radcliffe however, is said to shine in a role that sees him tap into some much darker places than we're used to seeing from the former child star. Horns is expected to hit U.K. theaters on October 31, but with an upcoming panel at Comic-Con and this brand-new poster courtesy of Empire Magazine, expect to see a horny Radcliffe in U.S. theaters soon.

Update: The new international trailer for Horns just hit the web, and it looks like the film's marketing team has decided to play down the comedic notes we mentioned earlier in favor of something much darker.
The shift in tone makes sense, considering Horns will hit theaters this Halloween and is about a man who actually may be turning into Satan.
