Daniel Radcliffe continues to inch away from his Harry Potter past. Twitch reports that he’ll be playing Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, a thriller surrounding Lucien Carr, the man who brought Ginsberg together with Jack Keroac and William S. Burroughs, but later served time for the murder of his lover David Kammerer.

The project has been in the works since 2009 when Chris Evans (Captain America), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, BBC’s The Hour) were attached to pay Keroac, Ginsberg and Carr respectively. Radcliffe replaces Eisenberg obviously, but no word whether the other two are still attached.
