Daniel Radcliffe To Play Legendary Poet Allen Ginsberg

‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe is to play legendary beat poet Allen Ginsberg in new movie ‘Kill Your Darlings’.

Twitch Film reports:

Just last week Harry Potter and The Woman In Black star Daniel Radcliffe was quoted in the French press saying that he would very likely be playing a gay character in a film to release in 2012. And it would appear that gay character is no less than Beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

Sources tell Twitch that once Radcliffe wraps up his Broadway run in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying he will move on to Kill Your Darlings with writer-director John Krokidas.

A thriller based on actual events, Kill Your Darlings revolves around the relationship between Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr.
