Daniel Radcliffe's first film post "Harry Potter," the Gothic thriller "The Woman in Black" made money at the box-office, so now, the actor is wisely choosing another thriller to star in. According to THR, Radcliffe is joining the production of "Horns" based on Joe Hill's novel.
Hill is, of course, the son of the fantastic Stephen King and is making a name for himself as an author. "Horns" is Hill's second published novel and it tells the story of Ig Perrish whose girlfriend dies from a mysterious rape. One morning, Ig wakes up to find horns growing from his head and learns that he has diabolical powers at whim.
Alexandre Aja is set to direct from a screenplay by Keith Bunin. Production is set to begin this fall.

So, the new "Dredd" reboot from Lionsgate is not opening until September 21st, BUT many Comic-Con fans were treated to a special screening Wednesday night, and they're unanimous -- this "Dredd" rocks!
Stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby introduced the film to the fans and said, “I hope you like your films dark and gritty...I want to apologize to anyone who’s a fan of lycra and gold codpieces -- you’re just going to have to wait for two hours.”
Aw, gosh darn it, that was the best part of "Judge Dredd."

So, "The Dark Knight Rises" will own 2012, now, Warner Bros. is looking forward to 2013 for our favorite superhero, Superman aka the "Man of Steel." The new Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced flick will fly into theaters on June 14th of next year, but this weekend, you can catch a glimpse of actor Henry Cavill aka Superman/Clark Kent at WB's Saturday Hall H Panel at Comic-Con!
It was a rumor before that Cavill would show up but now, thanks to THR, it's official! You'll get to see the actor live and in-person!
And if you're a "Hobbit" fan, WB also revealed that Ian McKellan will show up for the film's panel, and you will also be teased with Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi monster flick, "Pacific Rim."
Back to "Man of Steel," director Snyder would be there as well, but don't be looking for stars Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner. They would not be there! (Check out my "Sucker Punch" interview with Snyder where he teased us, briefly, about "Man of Steel")

"Magic Mike" surprised everyone and is almost reaching the $100 million box-office mark, so it's not equally surprising that a sequel is being planned. So ladies, more male strippers for you in their almost naked splendor!
So Glamour magazine had a Twitter question-and-answer session with the star (via THR), and he said, "Yes, yes and yes! We're working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger."
Yup, more back flips in their thongs to make you flip!
This is still in the planning stages so no word yet on whether Steven Soderbergh would return to direct or if Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, and Cody Horn would step back into their roles.

But wait there's more! Tatum is red hot right now, and he is in negotiations to star in and produce a biopic about '70s daredevil Evel Knievel for Sony. "Magic Mike" scribe, Reid Carolin, will write the script. This one will be based on Stuart Barker's book, Life of Evel.
But before the "Magic Mike" sequel, or the "Evel Knievel" flick, Tatum will return in front of the cameras for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" about the life and times of Olympic wrestler, Mark Schultz. Yes, he will be semi-naked again, HA!
