First poster for John Krokidas’ Kill Your Darlings

Sony Classics, via MovieFone, has released the first poster for John Krokidas’ Kill Your Darlings. The poster features a very yellow (aka indie) Dane DeHaan and Daniel Radcliffe looking glum.

The film is based on the true story of the murder of David Kammerer by Lucien Carr in 1944, which draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.

Radcliffe stars as Ginsberg, with Ben Foster as Burroughs, Jack Huston as Kerouac, and DeHaan as Carr. The film also stars Michael C. Hall, Elizabeth Olsen, David Cross, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Kyra Sedgwick.

Kill Your Darlings has been chosen as the closing film at this year’s Cork Film Festival on November 19th, with the rest of the country getting it on December 6th.
