He’s all about shedding his ‘young Hollywood’ image, and Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to star in a new supernatural fantasy-thriller.

The “Harry Potter” actor will play the lead role in “Horns,” a flick based on the bestselling Joe Hill novel.

Radcliffe’s character is Ig Perrish, who ends up getting accused of raping and killing his girlfriend. Also, he has horns growing out of his head!

However, those horns bring dark powers that enable Ig to get people to tell him the truth about anything and force them to engage with their own depraved desires.

Shooting begins this fall, so stay linked to the GossipCenter for the latest on this project.
