Daniel Radcliffe had to do it sooner or later, and it looks to be sooner, and that is to star in a film that doesn’t involve wizards. Wouldn’t you just know it he has decided to appear in a good old-fashioned gothic horror movie, and one directed by James Watkins of Eden Lake infamy. Good on him! Eden Lake was, and still is, a fantastic movie that really impressed me. Judging from the teaser trailer below he looks set to impress a whole new audience. Spooky be thy name!
The Woman in Black will be descending into theaters Feb 3rd 2012.
THE WOMAN IN BLACK stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and co-stars Ciarán Hinds (The Debt), Janet McTeer (Into The Storm) and Shaun Dooley (The Red Riding Trilogy). The gothic horror thriller is directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake) and adapted for the screen by Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class) from Susan Hill’s 1983 novel.
A young lawyer (Radcliffe) travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.
