Stephen King adaptations are not new to Hollywood; from The Shining to Sleepwalkers. And it seems that his son wants to follow his father’s footsteps.
Variety is reporting that Shia LaBeouf is now attached to star in Horns, based on the newest book by Joe Hill, King’s son. Scripted by Keith Bunin, LaBeouf will play Ig Perrish, a 20-something who wakes up after being blackout drunk to find that he has sprouted a pair of horns and that his girlfriend has been murdered. And that’s not it, the horns seems to grow bigger and bigger.
Hill will also serve as an executive producer on the film. It does sound pretty cool. Though if LaBeouf is suitable for the role, I’m not really sure.
