London: Daniel Radcliffe is all set to play another literary hero on the big screen after ‘Harry Potter’.

According to reports that Radcliffe will portray beat writer Allen Ginsberg, in a new murder mystery.

"I'm thrilled to actually finally be able to talk about it. It's a project that I've kind of been attached to for a long time. It's called 'Kill Your Darlings' and it's a story about a murder that was kind of the catalyst to forming the Beat Generation, so it's a film about Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and Lucien Carr... who was a really instrumental figure in all of their lives," he said.

"Potentially, I think, it could be a really great film and it's already got a really great cast," he added.
