Casting CallDaniel Radcliffe, a demon? Wha? The director of Horns takes us behind the scenes of his hire.
If you’re looking for someone to play a man turning into a demon, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe may not be the first name that comes to mind.
But French director Alexandre Aja was seeking the right star to carry his adaptation of Horns, a fantasy horror novel by Joe Hill - the son of Stephen King - and turned to Radcliffe.
“Daniel has that amazing power to carry the audience by the hand into a twisted world, but never lose them. He represents something that’s kind, accessible and familiar for so many people around the world. He will bring that relatability: if Daniel Radcliffe/Harry Potter can turn into the devil, I can see myself going through the same journey.”
Horns is out October 31st.
