First Official Image for “Kill Your Darlings” Starring Daniel Radcliffe

Collider recently shared the first image of Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHann, Jack Houston, and Ben Foster in their film Kill Your Darlings. Directed and co-written by John Krokidas, Kill Your Darlings is a drama about the origins of the Beat movement. The cast also includes actors Michael C. Hall, Elizabeth Olsen, David Cross, Kyra Sedgwick, and David Rasche.

The film is set to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which runs from January 17 until January 27. Take a look at the first official image and read the official film synopsis below:

“While he is attending Columbia University in 1944, the young Allen Ginsberg’s life is turned upside down when he sets eyes on Lucien Carr, an impossibly cool and boyishly handsome classmate. Carr opens Ginsberg up to a bohemian world and introduces him to William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Repelled by rules and conformity in both life andliterature, the four agree to tear down tradition and make something new, ultimately formulating the tenets of and giving birth to what became the Beat movement. On the outside, looking in, is David Kammerer, a man in his thirties desperately in love with Carr. When Kammerer is found dead, and Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr are arrested in conjunction with the murder, the nascent artists’ lives change forever.

Daniel Radcliffe fearlessly takes on the role of the young Ginsberg on a journey of discovery—to find his sexuality and his voice as a writer. Cowriter/director John Krokidas takes on this less-explored early chapter of the Beats and captures the period with visual flair, kinetic energy, and imagination. Kill Your Darlings is the riveting true story of a crime, a friendship, and the nexus that spawned a cultural movement.”

Tom Hardy at work on the Musical “Harold’s Harem”

Tom Hardy, the Inception, Dark Knight Rises, and Lawless star, is planning to star in the musical Harold’s Harem. The show was created by screenwriter Brett C. Leonard and Hardy describes it as a “crazy piece of work.” Hardy is set to play the lead character Harold. Currently, information on when and where the show will be produced has not been publicized.

In an interview, Hardy states: “It would be a serious piece and more in the vein of the Civil Rights breakthrough musical Caroline or Change.” Caroline or Change played in Broadway’s Eugene O’Neill Theatre in 2004 and won six Tony Award nominations before the show was moved to London’s National Theatre.

Do you think this is a good choice for Tom Hardy? Are you interested in seeing his musical theatre talents?

Be sure to check in soon for a MegaPost on the Tony Awards and the nominees.
