The Woman In Black - The Movie

Daniel Radcliffe has landed the lead role in Hammer movie 'The Woman In Black'.

Based on an adaptation of Susan Hill's best-selling novel, Radcliffe will play a young lawyer who finds himself embroiled in a ghostly hostage plot.

The script has been written by Jane Goldman, who wrote the recent box-office hit, 'Kick Ass'.
It will be directed by James Watkins.

"I am incredibly excited to be part of The Woman in Black," Radcliffe said.
"Jane Goldman's script is beautifully written - both tender and terrifying in equal measure," he added.

Watkins's horror film 'Eden Lake' was well received by critics when it was released two years ago.
Hill's novel was adapted for the stage and is still running in London's West End, more than 20 years after making its debut at the Lyric Hammersmith.

Radcliffe is best-known for playing Harry Potter in a series of feature films based on JK Rowling's hugely successful novels about a boy wizard.

He made his West End and Broadway debut in Peter Shaffer's 'Equus' in 2007 and 2008 respectively.
He is set to return to Broadway next spring, when he will star in the musical 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying'.

Hammer became synonymous with the horror genre in the 1950s thanks to films like 'Dracula' and 'The Mummy'.
Other famous Hammer films include 'The Curse Of Frankenstein' and 'The Curse 0f The Werewolf'.
The company was revived in 2007

Theatre at its best,
Dev. Scared the life out of me when I saw it at Hammersmith. My friend Nicky was the first 'Woman' (she has since done 'Guys And Dolls', 'Acorn Antiques-The Musical' etc) and has returned to the role a number of times in town. I haven't seen it since as it really did unnerve me. LOL

Will it be more or less terrifying than the existing movie? I thought it couldn't possibly scare me on the same level as the play, and it didn't *quite*, but it had a damn good go! Needless to say, I am excited for anything and everything Woman in Black-related and hope this new one also leaves me emotionally scarred for life. ^_^

Note to self: dig out your copy of The Man in the Picture for readin' purposes.

I think I am really out of step with this. I saw it on the recent tour. I went on my own and after hearing about it over the years I thought that might be a mistake. But whilst many around me was jumping out of their skin I found it to be very old fashioned and camp. Did I like it? Afraid Not.

There were lots of young people there in groups who really got into it though which was great to see.

Yep! That was amusing. For such a traditionally English ghost story, it works incredibly well as a traditional Japanese ghost story too. :3

I'd love to see a Japanese person scream- they normally just giggle and take millions of photos!
