One of the films we were most excited about at the Toronto International Film Festvial was Alexandre Aja's "Horns," an adaptation of the devilish novel by Joe Hill (his father is some guy named Stephen King). With a terrific cast led by Daniel Radcliffe as a man who wakes up one day looking more Hellboy than human, and Juno Temple, it seemed like it could be a delightful horror-comedy that pushed both Aja (director of "Piranha 3D") and Radcliffe out of their comfort zones. Sadly, the movie has been met with mostly middling notices. Our interest is still piqued, especially after this first clip (also Aja still seems keen on doing his crazy "Cobra the Space Pirate").

TIFF: Daniel Radcliffe & Juno Temple Talk The Horror Fairytale 'Horns'
Harry Potter no more, young British star Daniel Radcliffe is having a hell of a Toronto International Film Festival, starring determinedly in three very diverse features: he’s a hopeless romantic in “The F Word” opposite Zoe Kazan, a college-aged Allen Ginsberg in “Kill Your Darlings,” and a mourning lover confronting his very literal demons in Alexandre Aja’s “Horns.” We got to sit down with Radcliffe and his comely costar Juno Temple to talk about "Horns," which is still looking for distribution.

One of the more hotly anticipated movies that will make its splashy premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (for us, at least) is Alexandre Aja's "Horns," an adaption of the silly, surreal, scary-as-hell novel by Joe Hill (aka Stephen King's son). Now a trio of new photos from the film has debuted (courtesy of Entertainment Weekly), featuring the Boy Who Lived Daniel Radcliffe rocking some pretty devilish nubs.

Earlier this year at Sundance, Chilean director Sebastian Silva ("The Maid") made a splash with two very different movies. The first, "The Crystal Fairy," was a trippy road comedy that starred Michael Cera and Gabby Hoffman and saw a limited theatrical release this summer from IFC Films (read our review here). The other Silva joint was an equally trippy but far darker film that also co-starred Michael Cera called "Magic Magic," which will be released on DVD this week from Sony. It stars Juno Temple as a young girl who descends into madness while visiting her sister abroad (it involves many sleepless nights, hypnotism, a memorable use of a Knife song and finally some kind of witchcraft). We got to talk to Temple about what it was like working with Silva, what her reference points were for the character, and asked about what she's got coming next—Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Alexandre Aja's "Horns," and Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" retelling "Maleficent" (where she plays a tiny fairy).

Well, today seems to be that day, as The Wrap is reporting Juno Temple, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner have now joined Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella in the cast. That's a spookily good line-up.

Max Minghella, the talented young actor from "The Social Network" and "Art School Confidential" (talk about a movie that's been universally forgotten) and son of late director Anthony Minghella, has entered into talks to costar in Alexandre Aja's supernatural thriller "Horns," opposite the former Boy Who Lived, Daniel Radcliffe (according to a report in Variety). The production is set to begin later this fall, and will be financed by Red Granite Pictures (which will also handle foreign sales) and Mandalay Pictures.

For any Daniel Radcliffe fans concerned about his post-'Harry Potter' career, don't worry, he's going to be just fine. Earlier this year, the actor helped bring the modest, period-based Hammer horror pic "The Woman In Black" to over $120 million worldwide. And while his next effort is the indie Beat drama "Kill Your Darlings," where he takes on the role of Allen Ginsberg, it looks like the actor is hoping to replicate his genre success with another project.

Imagine waking up one day with a pair of curved horns sticking out of your forehead. That is the predicament that Ig Perrish, the protagonist of Joe Hill's wonderfully contemplative horror novel "Horns," and if there's one filmmaker we would love to see that image brought to the screen, it's Alexandre Aja, the French filmmaker behind "High Tension," the stylish "Hills Have Eyes" remake, and last summer's giddy-gory fun "Piranha 3D." Thankfully, according to the Hollywood Reporter, this will be the case.

Variety reports that Shia LaBeouf is attached to take the lead role in the film adaptation of Joe Hill's best-selling novel "Horns." Keith Bunin has been hired to adapt the novel that centers on Ig Perrish, a young man who awakens from a black-out hangover only to find that he has horns sprouting from his head. As these mysterious horns continue to grow, Ig sets out to discover who murdered his girlfriend and how her death possibly caused these horns to pop out. Sound twisted? Well, it turns out Joe Hill is actually Stephen King's son. Huh.
