You know how when you read/watch Harry Potter, and you listen every time the word “wand” gets mentioned, and it seems like an innuendo? Well, I have a feeling Daniel Radcliffe will suffer something quite similar with his next film, which is called…Horns. Trust me, the jokes will write themselves.
Because Daniel Radcliffe gets the horn for ginger Juno Temple…literally.
Daniel plays Ig Perrish, a man living in a small American town who is completely besotted with his redheaded girlfriend, Merrin (well duhhh).
And when Merrin is mysteriously killed, the town goes on a giant witch hunt to find her killer, and people start to accuse Ig of being responsible.
Then naturally, he wakes up with horns (and I don’t just mean the morning kind).
Cue Ig’s ostracism from the town, accusation of having dealings with the Devil and being mobbed by news reporters.
But he soon realises that the horns have the power to force people to submit to their wildest impulses and admit their darkest secrets, and decides to use this power to his advantage to track down his lost girlfriend’s killer.
This is apparently Daniel Radcliffe’s best performance to date, and in all honesty, he freaks us out a little in the trailer (above). He screams a lot, drinks hard liquor and goads reporters to beat each other up.
Very far away from getting giddy on sweets in the Gryffindor dorms. Turns out you don’t need a magic wand for a good horn. (Oh, I’m so sorry).
And although Juno was a brief member of Team Ginge (and there’s not much of her in the trailer) we just know that she will play the sought-after beauty fabulously.
Because, red hair is rather attractive, as we all know.
Horns is set to be released on 31st October, ripe and ready for Halloween.
