Having scared West End audiences for over twenty years at the Fortune Theatre in London, Susan Hill’s terrifying ghost story The Woman in Black is set for a big screen remake.
Hammer Films, the cult British film studio that made stars out of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing with its horror movies such as Dracula and The Curse of Frankenstein, is back in production – this time with a hotly anticipated movie version of The Woman In Black.
Now in post-production, the film has been adapted by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass) and is directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake).
A starry cast includes Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Equus), Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer and Roger Allam.
