Daniel Radcliffe, the star of Harry Potter, has confirmed reports he'll be playing another literary hero on the big screen - this time a real one.
The young Brit will portray beat writer Allen Ginsberg in a star-studded new murder mystery.
Daniel Radcliffe admits he has been attached to the project for months but was sworn to secrecy.
He says, "I'm thrilled to actually finally be able to talk about it. It's a project that I've kind of been attached to for a long time. It's called Kill Your Darlings and it's a story about a murder that was kind of the catalyst to forming the Beat Generation, so it's a film about Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and Lucien Carr... who was a really instrumental figure in all of their lives.
"Potentially, I think, it could be a really great film and it's already got a really great cast."
Chris Evans and Jesse Eisenberg are also attached to the movie, but Daniel Radcliffe has refused to name names.
