Just last week Harry Potter
and The Woman In Black
star Daniel Radcliffe was quoted in the French press saying that he would very likely be playing a gay character in a film to release in 2012
. And it would appear that gay character is no less than Beat poet Allen Ginsberg.
Sources tell ScreenAnarchy that once Radcliffe wraps up his Broadway run in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying
he will move on to Kill Your Darlings
with writer-director John Krokidas.
A thriller based on actual events, Kill Your Darlings
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.
Word of the film first broke in 2009 with Christine Vachon (Boys Don't Cry
, Hedwig And The Angry Inch
, A Dirty Shame
) producing while Chris Evans, Jesse Eisenberg and Ben Whishaw were attached to play Kerouac, Ginsberg and Carr, respectively. It's unknown if any of those three remain attached but Eisenberg, at least, is out with Radcliffe apparently taking his place.
Radcliffe's UK based representatives have declined comment.
