A recently-released 30 second teaser for Kill Your Darlings provides a first glance at former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe playing Beatnik Allen Ginsberg. The film looks at the lives of Ginsberg and his friends during the early years of the original Beats, and is said to focus on the 1944 murder of David Kammerer in Riverside Park. The film also features Dane DeHaan as Lucien Carr, Michael C. Hall as David Kammerer, Ben Foster as William S. Burroughs, and Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac and was filmed in New York City, as Columbia University was a catalyst in bringing the literary giants in the tale together. The film, which is scheduled to have limited U.S. release in October, won director John Krokidas the Directors to Watch award this year at Palm Springs International Film Festival. You can watch the teaser below.
