Joe Hill's HORNS was a fantastic book - funny, scary, straight up Gaimanesque, and well written. Hill's leapt out of his dad's considerable shadow long ago, but HORNS was probably the best horror novel I'd read in a while. And it looks like Shia LeBeouf is now set to star in the film and be closely involved in production, according to Variety.
That's good casting. While reading the book I was thinking that the role would be good for him, a dark, bitterly funny character and if they don't pull any punches HORNS could do for Hill what Stephen King's films did for him. Depending on who becomes involved behind the camera, HORNS could well become a horror classic if they stick to the source. They need to get a filmmaker with a real mean streak that won't try to fit the film in a box.
