Daniel Radcliffe Prays By A Grave In Latest Woman In Black Photos
We have a few moiré weeks left to remember Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, the boy who lived, because come 2012, he’s officially moving on to other projects, and we’re going to have to move along with him. In February, Radcliffe headlines the gothic horror The Woman In Black, playing an attorney who heads to the residence of a deceased client, only to discover her spirit might not have left the building. We posted a trailer earlier, and now we have two fresh images to share (via DenOfGeek):
That’s Ciarán Hinds co-starring alongside Radcliffe, though he’s not the only outstanding character actor lured to the creepy countryside by Woman director James Watkins. We’ll also see Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) and Roger Allam in supporting roles.
Woman likely will attract audience members anxious to see what Radcliffe can do outside of J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. But the true selling point, we hope, will be the ominous mood set in what has the potential to be a truly unnerving ghost story, the first we’re expecting to see next year. The film adapts a popular novel by author Susan Hill. If it has a chance at succeeding, it needs to get under our skins instead of shocking us with cheap and easy scares. Watkins is a relative newcomer, and we’re unfamiliar with his directing style, but I’m eager to see if Woman In Black serves as an introduction to a new horror voice, because the genre’s always in need of fresh blood.
