As far as a post-Potter career goes, Daniel Radcliffe is doing pretty nicely. He won acclaim on Broadway, starred in the global sleeper hit "The Woman in Black," picked up good reviews alongside Jon Hamm for TV miniseries "The Young Doctor's Notebook," and has generally proven to be a pretty smart cookie in terms of carving our a career away from his biggest franchise that's closer to Harrison Ford than Mark Hamill. And the next stage? Cracking the indie scene, with the young actor's first Sundance premiere.

As far as a post-Potter career goes, Daniel Radcliffe is doing pretty nicely. He won acclaim on Broadway, starred in the global sleeper hit "The Woman in Black," picked up good reviews alongside Jon Hamm for TV miniseries "The Young Doctor's Notebook," and has generally proven to be a pretty smart cookie in terms of carving out a career away from the franchise that's more Harrison Ford than Mark Hamill. And the next stage? Cracking the indie scene, with the young actor's first Sundance premiere.

Radcliffe is toplining John Krokidas' "Kill Your Darlings," a based-in-fact tale of murder and love in which Radcliffe plays Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, alongside "Boardwalk Empire" actor Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac, Ben Foster as William Burroughs, Elizabeth Olsen as Edie Parker, and "Chronicle" actor Dane DeHaan (who delivered one of our breakout performances of the year) as Lucien Carr. And a first look at Radcliffe, Huston and DeHaan has just arrived over at the Sundance website. The festival's synopsis for the movie reads:

"While he is attending Columbia University in 1944, the young Allen Ginsberg’s life is turned upside down when he sets eyes on Lucien Carr, an impossibly cool and boyishly handsome classmate. Carr opens Ginsberg up to a bohemian world and introduces him to William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Repelled by rules and conformity in both life and

literature, the four agree to tear down tradition and make something new, ultimately formulating the tenets of and giving birth to what became the Beat movement. On the outside, looking in, is David Kammerer, a man in his thirties desperately in love with Carr. When Kammerer is found dead, and Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr are arrested in conjunction with the murder, the nascent artists’ lives change forever.

Daniel Radcliffe fearlessly takes on the role of the young Ginsberg on a journey of discovery—to find his sexuality and his voice as a writer. Cowriter/director John Krokidas takes on this less-explored early chapter of the Beats and captures the period with visual flair, kinetic energy, and imagination. Kill Your Darlings is the riveting true story of a crime, a friendship, and the nexus that spawned a cultural movement."

It's a pretty tantalizing cast -- also including Michael C. Hall, Kyra Segwick, David Rasche and David Cross and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Ginsberg's parents, and the plot sounds like it could be a much more interesting take on the Beats than the recent "On The Road." We'll find out how it turns out when the film premieres on January 18th in Park City.
