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.

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?

Hopefully they can have him punch Pete Campbell's face in at some point in this movie as well.
