Daniel Radcliffe to play Allen Ginsberg in John Krokidas' KILL YOUR DARLINGS

Daniel Radcliffe has found his next starring role after The Woman in Black. Twitch is reporting that the Harry Potter star is set to play beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings. He is currently starring in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, but will start this project after the show wraps on Broadway.

The thriller from writer-director John Krokidas is based on actual events. The story revolves “around the relationship between Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr. Carr, for his part, is credited for connecting Ginsberg, Kerouac and William S Burroughs but, most notoriously, served time for the 1944 murder of his lover David Kammerer.”

This project has been in development since 2009 when Christine Vachon (Boys Don't Cry, Hedwig And The Angry Inch, A Dirty Shame) was set to produce. At the time the film was set to star Chris Evans, Jesse Eisenberg and Ben Whishaw as Kerouac, Ginsberg and Carr, respectively. Eisenberg is replaced by Radcliffe, but it is not known if the others are still involved.

Radcliffe is a versatile actor, he will be great in this role. I am looking forward to seeing The Woman In Black. What are your thoughts?
