LOS ANGELES - "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe has landed his first entry in the Sundance Film Festival.

Radcliffe plays poet Allen Ginsberg in the drama "Kill Your Darlings," which premieres in January at Robert Redford's Sundance festival.

"Kill Your Darlings" was among 16 films announced on Wednesday that will compete for the festival's top prize in the U.S. dramatic competition.

Directed by John Krokidas, "Kill Your Darlings" 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 Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah.
