Max Minghella is in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe in supernatural thriller “Horns”, according to Variety. Radcliffe plays Ignatius Perrish, a man who, on the anniversary of the murder of his beloved girlfriend, grows horns and supernatural powers, the ability to drive people “to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses.” He the, naturally, begins to use his powers to solve the mystery of his girlfriend’s gruesome death. Minghella will play Lee Tourneau, a compassionate public defender who’s got a hidden dark side. Keith Bunin adapted the screenplay back in 2009, before the original Joe Hill novel was even published, and Alex Aja will direct this fall.
Minghella was seen in prominent roles in David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and George Clooney’s “The Ides of March”, and recently wrapped up the lead role in indie “Not Safe for Work” for “Captain America” director Joe Johnston. He’ll next be seen opposite Channing Tatum and a plethora of 20-something rising stars in high school reunion drama “10 Years”, and is currently filming Owen Wilson-Vince Vaughn comedy “The Internship.”
