Daniel Radcliffe to Play Allen Ginsberg

Daniel Radcliffe to Play Allen Ginsberg

It's been reported that Daniel Radcliffe will be playing poet Allen Ginsberg in an upcoming film, which will be out next year. Radcliffe had hinted in the past about playing a gay character, and now we finally know who.

The film, "Kill Your Darlings", will focus on Ginsberg and his relationships with Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr.  Carr had gone to prison for the murder of David Kammerer, his lover. Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs were arrested as material witnesses.  

The film will be produced by Christine Vachon.
