Daniel Radcliffe has landed his first entry in the Sundance Film Festival.

The Harry Potter star plays poet Allen Ginsberg in the drama Kill Your Darlings, which premieres next January at Robert Redford's Sundance festival.

Kill Your Darlings was among 16 films announced that will compete for the festival's top prize in the US dramatic competition.

Directed by John Krokidas, the movie co-stars Elizabeth Olsen, Ben Foster and Jack Huston in the story of a murder that brings the young Ginsberg together with fellow future Beat Generation heroes Jack Kerouac and William S Burroughs at Columbia University in 1944.

The Sundance festival runs from January 17 to 27 in Park City, Utah.
