I'm not sure if it's even possible to be looking forward to a movie more than we are for Hammer's retelling of the classic Susan Hill tale The Woman in Black. Principal photography has begun, and we have your first look at Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in character as Arthur Kipps.
Some (as far as we're concerned) good news coming out for Hammer's upcoming adaptation of the Susan Hill book and Dread Central favorite, The Woman in Black. Turns out the flick won't be shooting in 3D after all, which suits the subtle tone of the book. Oh, and I bet you're looking for more casting news as well? We've got you covered, kids!
Anyone who is familiar with us knows that we've been singing the praises of the first movie adaptation of writer Susan Hill's The Woman in Black from 1989 for what seems like forever. Simply put - the flick is relentlessly frightening and, dare I say it, even better than the book. Track it down if you can. You will not be disappointed.
The Woman in Black is a big favorite of several members of the Dread Central staff, and we've been anxiously awaiting casting news for Hammer Films' upcoming remake. Today we learned who would be playing the main character, young lawyer Arthur Kipps, and we have to say it's an inspired choice!
As should be obvious from my screen name, The Woman in Black is a big favorite of mine, as well as several other members of the Dread Central staff, so today's confirmation that a new 3D version of the film is on its way from Hammer Films was met with much rejoicing.
For those of you out there unfamiliar with the Susan Hill book or the 1989 TV movie of The Woman in Black, take our advice and track them down immediately. You won't be sorry! We're talking some really scary stuff here, man! Even better? A new version from Hammer Films is officially on its way!
Now this is the best news I've heard from AFM all day! Andrew has reported in that Hammer Films, which is having a pretty amazing resurgence already what with The Resident and Let Me In in post-production and currently filming, respectively, is about to tackle one of the best ghost stories ever written, The Woman in Black. And that's not all -- it's going to be in 3D!
