Shia LaBeouf Feeling Horny For Joe Hill’s Latest Novel

We know you’ve been on the edge of your futon waiting for the latest Shia LaBeouf news, and tonight you’re in luck. He’s attached to a new movie.

Per Variety, LaBeouf has signed on to an adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel Horns. It’s the story of Ignatius Perrish, a twenty-something who awakens after a bender to find a pair of horns growing on his head. People he meets suddenly feel compelled to share their darkest secrets, and soon his own behavior starts to become questionable. As if that isn’t bad enough his ex-girlfriend, the one he still loves, is found assaulted and murdered. And Ig’s the prime suspect.

Hill, the son of obscure novelist Stephen King, has seen both of his novels optioned for the big screen. Heart Shaped Box was picked up by WB earlier, but it looks like Horns will be the first to hit screens. The script is being written by Keith Bunin, who’s currently writing a film for Michel Gondry, but there’s no director attached to this project as of yet.

LaBeouf will next be seen in this summer’s not terrible at all Transformers: Dark Of the Moon and is currently filming The Wettest Country for director John Hillcoat. Horns should probably be next on his schedule, but that has yet to be confirmed.
