Shia LaBeouf to star in the horror love story Horns
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Shia LaBeouf is set to star in the film HORNS, based on the popular novel from Joe Hill (who happens to be the son of famous novelist Stephen King) which will be headed up by Mandalay Pictures. The film follows Ig Perrish (LaBeouf) who wakes up one morning to discover that he has grown horns on his head overnight, they continue to grow and are somehow linked with the disappearance and unsolved murder of his girlfriend. No word on when this will start shooting, but there’s a good chance it won’t be until late summer since LaBeouf will be busy promoting TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON which opens on July 1, 2011.
I haven’t read the novel Horns and probably won’t now that I know Hill is related to Stephen King (only because King’s books give me the heeby-jeebys) but this film sounds very intriguing and not very scary so I might actually have to check it out. Of course, having Shia LaBeouf in the lead will help the cause too.
