Daniel Radcliffe will allegedly play the role of a gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the forthcoming thriller movie ‘Kill Your Darlings’.

’The Tailor of Panama’ actor Daniel Radcliffe has allegedly secured a character in the upcoming thriller movie about a murder case ‘Kill Your Darlings’. He will reportedly don the character of a gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the movie. It seems that, he would ditch his Harry Potter character, to become a gay in the movie. He also recently admitted to the French media that he would love to play a gay role.

As per the reports, the ‘Harry Potter’ actor will play the role of Allen Ginsberg who is a famous Beat generation poet and a gay activist. The movie will be directed by John Krokidas. He will join the project, once he complete ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’ of Broadway. The movie is based on a true event in the year 1944, about a murder case that helped in the brooding of the Beat Generation in 1950s.

The story of the movie ‘Kill Your Darlings’ is about the relationship of Allen Ginsberg with Lucien Carr and Jack Keouac. Allen is introduced by Carr to Lucien and Beat poet William S. Borroughs. He will also be involved in a murder case, after he stabs his lover David Kammerer to death, in a drunken fight in 1944. The project was first announced in the year 2009 with Jesse Eisenberg tapped for the role of Ginsberg.

Chris Evans and Ben Whishaw were considered to play the characters of Keouac and Carr respectively, but it is still unclear, if they are still attached to the project. The 22-year-old Daniel Radcliffe will next be seen in ‘The Woman in Black’ a supernatural thriller, in which he will play the role of a young lawyer Arthur Kipps and the movie has been set for US release on February 3, 2012.
