Radcliffe to play a literary hero in next

London: ‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe has confirmed he is set to play another literary hero on the big screen.

A website reports that Radcliffe will portray beat writer Allen Ginsberg, in a new murder mystery.

"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," he said.

"Potentially, I think, it could be a really great film and it`s already got a really great cast," he added.
