Elizabeth Olsen is feeling the Beat.

The "Martha Marcy May Marlene" star is set to join Daniel Radcliffe in "Kill Your Darlings," a thriller that looks at how great art, creativity and community can spring from tragedy, according to Variety.

"Kill Your Darlings" tells the story of how a 1944 murder at Columbia University brought together the young writers who would spark the Beat Revolution. Olsen will be playing Edie Parker, the girlfriend of famed poet Jack Kerouac, with Radcliffe already signed on to play Kerouac's friend and colleague, Allen Ginsberg (who was recently played by James Franco in "Howl" and David Cross in "I'm Not There").

Jack Huston, who appeared as Royce King in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and as Richard Harrow on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," has also recently joined the cast as Kerouac, while Dane DeHaan, who will be seen next month in "Chronicle," will take on the role of Lucien Carr, Ginsberg's classmate and crush.

"Kill Your Darlings" is probably just one of many juicy projects that Elizabeth Olsen will be involved with thanks to the well-deserved buzz that's come from her acclaimed work in "Martha Marcy May Marlene." She's already successfully separated herself from being associated with the "Olsen Twins" and has several films already in the pipeline, including two supernatural thrillers: "Silent House," opening March 9, and "Red Lights," which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

Plus, she now can say that she's doing a movie with Harry Potter.

"Kill Your Darlings" will commence with production in March at Columbia University in New York City.
