Scenes from Horns

Radcliffe’s new movie being filmed in Mission

Film crews will be back in town at the end of the month

Mission’s new “jazz nightclub” at the Bellevue Hotel was taken down almost as quickly as it went up last week.

The set, near First Avenue and Grand Street, was built for a movie called Horns, starring Daniel Radcliffe, who is best known for his work in the Harry Potter series.

Horns is being filmed at various locations across the Lower Mainland from Squamish to Mission.

“We just started shooting in Mission [last] week,” said Lee Anne Muldoon, publicist for the movie.

Crews were in Surrey and Fort Langley before coming to Mission.

We’re only filming a couple of days in each place, said Muldoon, adding the film crew will be back in Mission for another four days towards the end of November.

The movie is based on Joe Hill’s best-selling novel by the same name, Horns. It is a supernatural thriller, driven by fantasy, mystery and romance, and explores why bad things happen to good people and what the loss of true love can do to a man.

Ig Perrish (Radcliffe) is the main suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple).

He wakes up one morning with horns growing from his head and soon discovers they will drive people to confess their sins and give into their selfish and unspeakable impulses — the perfect tool to find out how his girlfriend died and who killed her.

Horns is directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes), and co-produced by Red Granite Pictures and Mandalay Pictures. There is no release date for the movie yet.
