THR reports the film from Alexandre Aja and starring Daniel Radcliffe has been picked up for a release sometime in 2014. The story follows a guy (Radcliffe) who wakes up to find his girlfriend (Juno Temple) has been raped and killed.

One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was director Alexandre Aja’s (The Hills Have Eyes) new film Horns. Based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill, the pic centers on Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend. He awakens one morning to find horns growing from his head, which have the ability to force confessions from strangers. This aids him in his quest to find the real killer, and exact his revenge. Horns also stars Juno Temple, Max Minghella, James Remar, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner. I caught the world premiere here at Tiff, and am happy to report the film is really well done. Aja has managed to craft a movie that mixes together a few genres--horror, comedy, love story--and results in something unique and cool. Plus, the entire cast is great. »

David M. Rosenthal’s A Single Shot joins the ranks of some superior 2013 thrillers, the uniting factor being their complete grasp of a sense of place and time and their ability to unconditionally exploit their setting for the benefit of the story and characters. Mud, The Frozen Ground, Scenic Route and now this poetic backwoods chiller all place a compelling central character in a potentially life threatening ordeal, surrounds them with superior supporting players and executes their motives and actions with fluidity and respect. This year has so far seen a resurgence in this type of yarn – a stripped down, character based story that extracts its involving tenseness through simple actions, not bombast and explosions.

“It’s kind of like a detective movie but it’s set in the Appalachians,” is the way Sam Rockwell encapsulates his latest film, A Single Shot. Rockwell plays John, a true anti-hero who gets in way over his head after a hunting accident and finding a good deal of cash. What follows that opening is a dirty film noir, where you rarely know who to trust, despite having a positive attitude to all the familiar faces Rockwell is surrounded by in the film: Jeffrey Wright, William H. Macy, Joe Anderson, and Jason Isaacs. It’s an impressive ensemble that Rockwell relished working with. This adaptation was another opportunity for the acclaimed actor to transform himself in subtle ways, which, as Rockwell puts it, is always a bonus. Here’s what else Sam Rockwell had to say about A Single Shot, performing adaptations, and having to take risks: Which movies or characters did you watch for preparation »

Sam Rockwell’s secret weapon is not his gift of gab, but his ability to use that chatty nature to disarm everyone around him. Rockwell, so rakish and charming in this summer’s indie hit The Way, Way Back, isn’t the kind of actor who can’t play taciturn, but deliberately robbing him of his quirky, squirrelly speech patterns is always a bit of a letdown. As such, so too is A Single Shot, a grim, drab crime drama with Rockwell playing strong and silent at the center, leaning too heavily on the latter quality.
Rockwell is John Moon (a nice, if unintentional, nod to one of his best films, the 2009 sci-fi drama Moon), an estranged husband and father living in the hills of West Virginia in a nondescript little shack. One morning, while on the hunt for some deer, »

Get ready to see a different side of Sam Rockwell. Well known for his goofy charm in movies such as this summer's "The Way Way Back" and as a suave bad guy in "Charlie's Angels" and "Iron Man 2," Rockwell's role in this weekend's indie "A Single Shot" could come as a shock. He plays John Moon, a West Virginian man who finds himself in a spot of trouble after he accidentally murders a young woman while hunting in the woods. Soon, he's the one being hunted.
We caught up with Rockwell prior to the movie's release, chatting on his trademark dance moves, the thick West Virginia accent he adopted for the role and the power of a good beard.

Review by Scott Clark of Cinehouse
Based on the bestselling novel by Joe Hill (that’s horror maestro Stephen King’s son), Horns is a spellbinding gothic fairy tale that tackles lost love and the pits of human nature to deliver one of the most enjoyable horror flicks in some time. This was one of the highlights of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) wakes up one day to find he has grown a set of horns that grant him strange abilities. Haunted by the brutal murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple) and hounded by the people of his town who blame him, he decides to use those abilities to help exact his brtal revenge on the true killer. As Ig quickly unravels the conspiracy, »

Chicago – Sam Rockwell does no wrong. He takes parts in movies major (“Iron Man 2”) and minor (“A Single Shot,” now available On Demand and opening theatrically in limited release this Friday, September 20, 2013) and makes decisions that other actors wouldn’t even consider. He is so completely, believably in the moment.
You don’t see the wheels turning like you do in so many other actor’s performances. He feels natural even in incredibly unnatural situations. He’s the best thing about “A Single Shot,” a film with echoes of “A Simple Plan” & “Winter’s Bone,” elevating it above its flaws as he has done for other films so many times before.
Finding the deep emotional territory that he hasn’t really mined since his underrated work in “Snow Angels,” Rockwell plays the deeply haunted John Moon, an average guy in a rural community who seems on the edge »

A dark, tightly wound backwoods thriller with a twist, "A Single Shot" premiered earlier this year at the Berlinale, and hits theaters September 20. Well-designed and executed by director David M. Rosenthal ("Janie Jones") from Matthew F. Jones’s script and novel of the same name, the film features uniformly fine performances by a cast including Sam Rockwell as an unlucky ex-farmer and hunter, Kelly Reilly as his estranged wife, an unrecognizable Jeffrey Wright as his alcoholic friend, William H. Macy as a gimpy small-town lawyer, and Joe Anderson and Jason Isaacs as seriously creepy denizens of the deep, wet forestlands. Atli Örvarsson’s eery score and Edward Grau’s claustrophobic cinematography further the finger-clenching suspense. A review roundup is below: Guardian:As befits the blood-and-mud spattered backdrop, there's much gruesome razor-slicing and corpse-lugging on display: a forceful reminder, you would suppose, of the elemental natural forces at work.

Alexandre Aja’s Horns had its world debut at Tiff at the end of last week, and the early reviews have certainly been divisive. Our own man in Toronto, Ian, was not particularly enamoured with the film – you can read our review here.
But many other early reviews have expressed solid enjoyment, so if you’ve been looking forward to this one as well, it looks like there may well be hope yet.
Having just had its debut in Toronto, the first footage has now surfaced online in the form of a clip, courtesy of Collider, giving us a look at Daniel Radcliffe sporting the titular horns upon his head.
When his longtime girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) is brutally murdered, Ignatius “Ig” Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is blamed by many in his small town for her death. While the case remains open, public opinion has already condemned Ig for the crime, »
