London: Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is all set to play the legendary Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in new movie Kill Your Darlings.

The 22-year-old is set to start shooting the film – which will be written and directed by John Krokidas – after his run in Broadway play How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, reported Contactmusic.

The project was initially announced in 2009 with Jesse Eisenberg originally set to play Ginsberg with Chris Evans as poet/novelist Jack Kerouac and Ben Whishaw as instrumental Beat Generation figure Lucien Carr.

The film – which is based in real events – revolves around the relationship between Ginsberg, Kerouac and Carr.

Ginsberg – who was openly gay – was a leading figure of the Beat Generation in 1940s and ’50s New York City, a movement that was highly critical of American materialism, censorship and conformity. (PTI)
