Los Angeles: After `Woman in Black`, `Harry Potter` star Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to star in another supernatural thriller `Horns`.

Based on the novel by Joe Hill, ‘Horns’ is the story of Ig Perrish. Ig, in the aftermath of his girlfriend Merrin Williams` mysterious rape and murde, awakes one morning to find horns growing from his head and diabolical powers at his command.

`Piranha 3D` director Alexandre Aja is helming the project which is being financed by Red Granite Pictures. `Horns’ has been adapted by Keith Bunin of `In Treatment` fame.

"After reading Joe Hill`s cult book, I couldn`t resist temptation to dive into the devilish underworld and reinvent a universal myth," Aja said.

Radcliffe will portray the character of Ig, who is suspected of the rape and murder of his girlfriend.

Shooting is slated to begin later this year.
