More news has come via our Order Partner about the filming of Dan Radcliffe’s (Harry Potter) next big project, “The Woman in Black”. Production company Hammer Films confirmed on Twitter that filming is to commence on the 26th of September at Pinewood Studios.

Additionally, Radcliffe spoke briefly to Total Film about working with his new director James Watkins. [Spoiler alert! The article finishes with an image of Radcliffe as Harry from the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”] Quotage:

“We were doing auditions for my son yesterday which was bizarre’ the actor exclusively tells Total Film. “But it’s very exciting and James Watkins is fantastic. He might kill me for telling you this, but he’s actually started working with an acting coach to give him a better idea of how to approach stuff with actors.

“Which is a brilliant thing ’ I don’t know of any other directors doing that. He’s inspired and we’re uncannily on the same page about the film. We met and we agreed that this film is not a scary movie but a film about loss and family and grief.”

“The Woman in Black” is an adaptation of a 1983 novel by Susan Hill of the same name. The screenplay is by Jane Goldman (“Kick Ass”) and the film will be directed by James Watkins (“Eden Lake”).

Thanks again to!

Update: Hammer Films have confirmed to Deadline that they have “now decided not to shoot the film in 3D as first announced”. Deadline also reveals that Ciarán Hinds (Aberforth Dumbledore) has been cast as “a local landowner who counsels [Radcliffe's character, Arthur Kipps] as he investigates this Victorian mystery.” British actress Janet McTeer – who starred opposite Brendan Gleeson (Alastor Moody) in the HBO film “Into the Storm” about Winston Churchill – has also been cast.

BOO! Now I officially know he will not be present at The Simpsons Premiere party in Los Angeles. How sad. This sucks. I should be happy to see him busy with other projects but I guess I'm more selfish with the idea of him possibly being in Los Angeles. I'm heartbroken....Avatar ImageHogwartsHP says: I can't wait too !§! Good cast !§! I've seen "My boy Jack" with him and he's amazing !§!Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: Can not wait to see this movie. All are together in another movie!!:)Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Coolio!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW!!! I think this Movie is going to be AWESOME!!! I just hope we are going to have the opportunity too!!! In the mean time, I think I will get me a copy of the book, and just see more of what it is all about!!! lol I know Dan will do well in this Movie, it is also going to be cool seeing him do something different for him!!!Avatar ImageJeannine says: Am SO looking forward to seeing Daniel in this film...and glad to see Ciaran Hinds(also of HBO's "ROME" ..he portrayed Julius Ceasar in it ) is also going to be part of the production,,,as well as Janet McTeer,who was absalutly wonderful in Into the Storm ...sounds like the beginnings of a brilliant cast....should be an excellently film. Am curious who see who is cast as the character for Daniel's character's son. Avatar ImageSlyBones says: I've never seen the film its adapted from. Avatar Imagekiwimci says: DeliaDee, count the HP actors in a Brit movie... this sounds like the beginnings pf an excellent drinking game! I've actually bought the 'Woman In Black' novel. Gonna start when I finish rereading His Dark MaterialsAvatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: i can't wait to see it.Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Good luck, Dan!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Awesome!! Can't wait to see it!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That sounds great! I can't wait to actually see the movie, I mean I've barely seen him in anything besides Harry Potter. It would be a good way to show his actual talent.Avatar ImageCatherine says: cool!!! i cant wait to see it! i hope Dan does well!Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: hooray for not 3dAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: Great. all the best DanAvatar ImageTheGleek77 says: yes can't wait~!Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: oh boy, oh boy!Avatar Imageanne1 says: So much to look forward to featuring Dan;DH in November, QI Christmas special, and eiVega you've just reminded me that there's something else to look forward to at least hearing Dan in, the Simpson's Halloween special! I can't wait for this film to come out. I've seen the play, which was one of the most spine-chilling I've seen and I saw the previous film which I believe featured 'James Potter' as Kipps. It's a really good old-fashioned ghost story with a chilling twist.Avatar ImageGloria says: Looking forward to this very much!!!!!!!Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: @DeliaDee I totally play that game, too! Sweeney Todd was really disturbing: Snape, Peter Pettigrew, Bellatrix, and the new Grindewald all together *shudders*
