Daniel Radcliffe confirmed for “Woman in Black” role

By Sean O’Connell What once was rumored has now been confirmed. Daniel Radcliffe, star of the “Harry Potter” franchise, will star as Arthur Kipp in the film adaptation of Susan Hill’s novel, “The Woman in Black.”

In a press release sent to Hollywood News, Hammer Films confirmed that James Watkins (“Eden Lake”) will direct the gothic, supernatural horror film from a script by Jane Goldman (“Kick-Ass”). It casts Radcliffe as a young lawyer who stays the night in a desolate and secluded coastal mansion in rural England, where he’s spooked by the ghost of the house’s former resident. The book has been adapted for the stage. It’s expected to reach theaters in 2011.

“When I met Dan, it was quite uncanny how closely our thoughts on the story mirrored each other: I can’t wait to get down to work with him to fashion a compelling character and a classy ghost story that tugs at the heart and chills to the bone,” says Watkins.

Radcliffe certainly is staying busy. His IMDB page has him attached to an updated adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic novel “All Quiet on the Western Front,” as well as Bronwen Hughes’ biography picture, “The Journey is the Destination.”

Oh, and he has two tiny films in the can. You might have heard of them. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” parts one and two. The cast of those epics are expected to be in San Diego this week for Comic Con, so stay tuned for news and updates as the week progresses.

    Awesome. I can’t wait to see it. Daniel Radcliffe is such a talented young actor. He sure is racking up the post-Potter roles. Now, he’s got “How to Succeed in Business…,” “All Quiet on the Western Front,” “The Woman in Black,” and “Journey is the Destination.” Go Dan!
