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.
The original is one of my top favorite made for tv horror films. This remake could be interesting. Thanks for the link for the play version, I'll check it out.
I the original Woman in Black too. It's so quietly unsettling. I agree, this is going to be one interesting remake!
