Joe Hill's 21st century fairytale novel 'Horns' will be getting the feature adaption treatment and those astute fellows over at Mandalay/Mandate have managed to acquire the filmmkaing skills of Alexandre Aja ('Piranha 3D', 'High Tension', 'The Hills Have Eyes', 'Mirrors') to helm the project. The dark and comical story features Ignatius Perrish who awakens from a heavy drunken night with a headache and a pair of horns growing out of his head. 'Transformers' star Shia LaBeouf has been rumoured to be attached to this project to play Perrish for a while now but nothing signed as yet. Keith Bunin wrote the script. The concept of 'Horns' always reminds me of the music video for The Cooper Temple Clause's 'Blind Pilots' which featured actor Michael Fassbender out on a stag night with a talisman around his neck which ultimately turns him into satyr. Check out the video below.

Anyway here's the plot from the original novel:

"Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty. Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due. HORNS: It's moving, sad, often funny, redemptive, and filled with hope."

'Horns' is expected to shoot in Spring 2012 for a 2013 release.
