One of the more interesting projects being batted around Hollywood has been the long talked about film, Kill Your Darlings. Originally announced in 2009, the film has been relatively stagnant when it comes to production moving forward, but that’s about to change.
Twitch is reporting that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will star in the film, which is set to be helmed by John Krokidas. Kill Your Darlings will follow the story of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Lucien Carr, and their relationship with one another. The film was originally set to star Jesse Eisenberg, Ben Whishaw, and Chris Evans, but will now see Radcliffe taking on the role originally set for Eisenberg, that of Ginsberg himself.
Overall, while this film itself has been doomed from the start it seems, the project does have an amazing amount of potential. Radcliffe is proving to be one of the more interesting young talents around, and this is only going to grow. Radcliffe is proving to be an immensely popular name, so here’s to hoping that he can help move this project to where it deserves to be: the big screen.
