Kill Your Darlings is the film focusing on the true events surrounding the murder of David Kammerer in 1944. It features Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan).
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.
There is some serious talent involved in this project, which also stars Michael C Hall and Elizabeth Olsen, so it should be a fantastic movie dealing with some amazing characters. John Krokidas directs.
