First Look: Daniel Radcliffe in Ghost Film 'The Woman In Black'
Yes, Deathly Hallows is almost here, but believe or not, Daniel Radcliffe is trying his hardest to make a name for himself outside of Harry Potter. He's currently shooting a movie called The Woman In Black for the recently revived Hammer Films. It's based on a 1983 horror novel by Susan Hill about a menacing spectre that haunts a small English town. Eden Lake's James Watkins is directing from a script by Stardust and Kick-Ass writer Jane Goldman. Radcliffe stars as Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who travels to a remote village to organize a recently deceased client's papers. Hammer (via Bloody-Disgusting) debuted two photos.
Continuing the story: As Kipps (Radcliffe) works alone in the client's isolated house, he begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent. These are early shots, so try to ignore the blue screen in the background of the foggy one. I'm curious to see how Radcliffe fares outside of Hogwarts, especially in a period thriller. The Woman In Black is filming now, so expect to see more in 2011.
