Toronto: Mess with Daniel Radcliffe, get the 'Horns' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Harry Potter had it easy! Daniel Radcliffe is accustomed to playing a character with a painful forehead scar that draws annoying stares, but this headache is on a whole other level.

In Horns, a supernatural mystery that premieres tomorrow at the Toronto Film Festival, Radcliffe plays Ig, a small-time guy who’s suspected of brutally murdering his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). The town seems to have made up its mind about his guilt, especially when he begins to sprout devilish horns while the police investigate the crime. Before long, though, Ig notices that his frightful horns seem to have one beneficial side-effect: people around him suddenly seem compelled to tell him the truth, the horrible truth that they’ve never told anyone else. Just maybe, those horns of his will help him find out who really committed the murder.

The film is directed by Alexandre Aja, the mind behind The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D. Two more exclusive photos from Horns below. READ FULL STORY

'Kill Your Darlings' trailer: Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan caught in 'an endless circle of living and dying' -- VIDEO

It’s the perfect combination of poetry and … murder?

A film festival favorite, Kill Your Darlings follows a young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe) as he first encounters William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) in New York City in the 1940s and launches what would eventually become the Beat Generation, a group of post-World War II writers characterized by their overall rejection of standards, sexual experimentation, drug use, and more. Beat literature included pieces such as Ginsberg’s Howl, Kerouac’s On the Road, and Burroughs’ Naked Lunch, all of which helped hook America into a new obsession with the culture. But Kill Your Darlings takes things back to an event that occurred before the “Beat Generation” term even existed.

The film tells a lesser-known, much darker story, revolving around an event that occurred in 1944, after Ginsberg met a man named Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan). Well before Ginsberg wrote Howl, he befriended Carr in school. But when Carr murdered professor David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall), Ginsberg was left with a lot of questions.

Kill Your Darlings presents a new chapter in the history of the Beat Generation, one of “obsession and murder.”

Jennifer Jason Leigh and Elizabeth Olsen also star.

Daniel Radcliffe in final talks to star in 'Frankenstein'

Daniel Radcliffe may not be at Hogwarts anymore, but he’s still palling around with creepy creatures.

The actor, who reminded folks he’s also a Broadway song-and-dance man at the Oscars this week, is in final talks to star as Igor, the hunchbacked lab assistant,  in the upcoming Frankenstein from 20th Century Fox, EW has confirmed. (Deadline originally reported the news.)

The long-in-the-works script, based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel, is being written by Max Landis (Chronicle). This version of the famous story will apparently be from Igor’s point of view. Frankenstein’s tale was last seen on the big screen in Tim Burton’s 2012 homage, Frankenweenie.

Sony Pictures Classics howls for 'Kill Your Darlings'

Kill Your Darlings, the Sundance movie that stars Daniel Radcliffe as a young Allen Ginsberg and examines how a 1944 murder brought together the young college students who would become the voices of the Beat generation, was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics. The deal is for U.S. and Australian, New Zealand, South African, African TV, and Eastern European rights.

Kill Your Darlings, co-written and directed by John Krokidas, also co-stars Ben Foster, Dane DeHaan, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston, and Elizabeth Olsen.

“This is an amazing movie, a great American drama, thriller, and perfect evocation of New York in the 1940′s as you have never seen on screen before,” SPC said in a statement. “With an ensemble cast that is truly mind-blowing led by Daniel Radcliffe in a profoundly moving performance as Allen Ginsberg, we are witnessing the birth of a major new American filmmaker.”

Sundance 2013: Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon Levitt do good work (but not together)

Both have been famous since there were kids. Each is making smart, interesting career choices. And on the first full day of Sundance 2013, their latest projects aired back-to-back, making for an exceedingly satisfying Sundance-y day-into-night.

Radcliffe plays Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, and before you say, what, didn’t James Franco take care of that assignment pretty recently in Howl?, the answer is, this expressive, jazzy, ambitious movie by John Krakidas is something else entirely. In dramatizing a dark, hidden sidebar in the burnished history of Ginsberg and the Beat Generation – a murder entangling Ginsberg with William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, their charismatic Columbia University muse Lucien Carr, and Carr’s obsessed admirer David Kammerer – the filmmaker explores the challenges both of artistic revolution as well as sexual honesty. The cast has turned over during the years Krokidas worked on it, but luck and fate have worked in the filmmaker’s favor: In addition to Radcliffe (who first expressed interest in 2008), Dane DeHaan is hot and dangerous as Carr, Ben Foster burrows into Burroughs, Jack Huston seduces as Jack Kerouac, and Michael C. Hall is just the right combo of desperate/creepy/lovelorn as Kammerer. The movie – stylish-looking on a shoestring budget – makes fab use of music, from “Lili Marlene” to TV On the Radio.  And Radcliffe – hair permed into Ginsbergy college curls, full of vitality – holds the emotional center as a young artist in art and in life.

Meanwhile, in a sex tale of quite another color, Joseph Gordon Levitt writes, directs, and stars in Don Jon’s Addiction, an improbably entertaining and kind-hearted comedy about a specimen of New Jersey manhood – played by the filmmaker himself – who beds plenty of ladies, but gives his heart (and other parts) first and foremost to online porn.

Scarlett Johansson – comedienne! — channels a soupçon of Jersey gum-chewing doll and a dash of Judy Holliday to turn into the real-life girl of his (objectified) dreams who’s out to domesticate him; Julianne Moore is the earthy older woman (!) who teaches him what love’s got to do with it. Gordon Levitt goes broad in Joizy accent, in jokes based on stereotype, in sexual politics – but he does it with such good cheer that he leaves viewers with a happy ending.
