Jared Harris Joining Hammer Films Horror Thriller 'The Quiet Ones'

April 16, 2012

Jared Harris

Earlier this month Hammer Films announced a follow-up to their spooky film The Woman in Black, and now yet another horror film from the rejuvenated banner is coming together. Exclusive Media, a parent company of Hammer, has announced that "Mad Men" star Jared Harris (Moriarty from Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) will star in The Quiet Ones, a new horror thriller that follows an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads some of his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. More below!

It sounds like this could easily be a found footage film (it's based on a true story as well) with someone filming and observing the professor as he attempts this experiment. That seems even more likely considering Quarantine 2 director John Pogue will be at the helm of the film. He'll be working from a script by Tom Deville with contributions from Craig Rosenberg (The Uninvited) and Oren Moverman (Rampart). Pre-production is currently underway with an eye towards shooting the film in June across the pond in the United Kingdom. Harris is a strong presence on screen, and it will be interesting to see him lead a film.

  • Hattori Hanzo
    He's also a great presence in Fringe and Mad Men, but then again, what else would you expect from the son of Richard Harris? 
  • Lebowski
    Hopefully they can have him punch Pete Campbell's face in at some point in this movie as well.
