Deadline is reporting that Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Kyra Sedgwick (“The Closer”), and Jennifer Jason Leigh (Road to Perdition) will join Daniel Radcliffe in Kill Your Darlings.
The picture, which is being described as a thriller, “[follows] the story of friendship and murder [and] sees Radcliffe continuing to distance himself from his Harry Potter persona, here playing Allen Ginsberg. [Jack] Huston is Jack Kerouac and Foster is William Burroughs. Hall will play Burrough’s longtime friend who fell victim to a murder that helped spark the Beat Revolution in 1944.”
As Deadline reports, in addition to the aforementioned cast, the film also stars Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Dane Dehaan (Chronicle), with director John Krokidas from a script written by Krokidas and Austin Bunn.
Kill Your Darlings is set to begin filming March 19 in New York City. Are you excited for this one?
