This is pretty old hat by now, but Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) has been cast to star in Hammer’s remake of The Woman in Black! Very cool news indeed. Although I find him a bit too young, I think this is going to be an interesting re-visioning of what I consider a classic in small screen horror. However, I’m reserving some trepidations regarding the decision to film the remake in 3D. Aside from one harrowing scene in the film, I can’t imagine that such a cerebral work needs any fancy technical trickery. Can’t help it, it makes me fear for the worst.
However, Filmstalker wrote a really interesting article on the people who will be behind the camera, and although the writer of this article is anti-3D in general he’s gives a lot of positive info on the filmmakers and their track record. This is another film I am anticipating if only because I’m so totally curious as to how they’ll pull it off.
