Posted by Megs

This morning Lionsgate has sent over the new UK trailer and poster for Daniel Radcliffe’s new film Horns. The film will now hit UK cinemas on Wednesday, 29 October, 2014, it was previously Halloween.

From master-of-horror Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) comes this supernatural, offbeat thriller starring beloved British actor Danielle Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Kill Your Darlings) and the talented Juno Temple (Magic Magic, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For).

Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is accused for the violent rape and killing of his girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Juno Temple). After a hard night of drinking, Ig awakens, hungover, to find horns growing out of his head; they have the ability to drive people to confess sins and give in to selfish impulses. Ig decides to use this effective tool to discover the circumstances of his girlfriend’s death and to seek revenge by finding the true murderer.

Daniel and Juno lead an all-star cast with strong support from David Morse (The Green Mile, The Hurt Locker) and Heather Graham (The Hangover I&II, Boogie Nights).

Variety is reporting today that Harry Potter director David Yates is in heavy talks to direct the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films for Warner Bros.  The first film, of what is believed to be a trilogy, will be released on Nov. 18, 2016.  Yates is currently filming Tarzan at Leavesden Studios, where Potter was filmed. According to Variety:

Sources tell Variety that Yates, who directed several Harry Potter movies including the final “Deathly Hallows” pics, has agreed to return for the first installment of the Harry Potter spinoff trilogy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

No deal has been made but insiders confirm both sides are in negotiations.

Warner Bros. had no comment on this story.

We will of course keep you updated on whether this news is true or not. But, as always, treat this as a rumor until it is confirmed by Warner Bros.
