Mandalay Pictures has optioned the film rights to Joe Hill's upcoming novel "Horns" says Variety.
A love story driven by horror and vengeance, the narrative revolves around a 26-year-old man who wakes up one morning from a blackout hangover and finds horns sprouting out of his head.
As the horns grow bigger by the day, the reason why seems to lie in the unsolved murder of his girlfriend.
Hill, son of Stephen King, will serve as executive producer. Peter Guber and Cathy Schulman will produce.
