A new, more tightly edited trailer for The Woman In Black doesn’t skimp on the chills in store for Daniel Radcliffe when he travels to an isolated village to settle a deceased client’s affairs. James Watkins directs from a script by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, The Debt, X-Men: First Class, Stardust) adapted from Susan Hill’s novel. Janet McTeer also stars in the CBS Films release slated to open February 3.
CBS Films’ The Woman In Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe as a lawyer who travels to a remote English village and discovers that the ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals, opens Feb. 3. James Watkins directed a script by X-Men: First Class scribe Jane Goldman. Ciaran Hinds and Janet McTeer co-star in the horror thriller, a remake of a 1989 TV movie that was adapted from a play that was adapted from Susan Hill’s novel.
Hammer Films has confirmed Twitterings about Radcliffe starring in its 3D gothic thriller. Based on the modern classic novel, The Woman In Black is being adapted by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass), and will be directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake). Shooting begins later this year. Exclusive Media Group – Hammer’s parent company – is co-financing with Canadian distributor Alliance Films. It’s also handling international sales. Watkins did such a good job on Eden Lake, I can’t wait to see this one.
