THE WOMAN IN BLACK (coming from the new incarnation of Hammer Films) has added two more actors to its cast, Ciaran Hinds and Janet McTeer. Hit the jump for more details on the roles!
WOMAN follows a lawyer named Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) who moves into a small British town to put a recently deceased client’s papers in order. Working alone in the client’s remote mansion, he discovers dark secrets, including the titular spirit who is haunting the village. EDEN LAKE’s James Watkins will direct from a script by KICK-ASS’ Jane Goldman, based on the novel by Susan Hill.
Deadline London is reporting that “Hinds will play the local landowner who counsels Daniel Radcliffe as he investigates this Victorian mystery,” while “McTeer will play Hinds’ on-screen wife, Mrs Daily.”
Hinds was most recently seen in the supernatural Irish tale, THE ECLIPSE (check out our feature on that film and video interviews with the actor) and will turn up alongside Radcliffe in the upcoming final HARRY POTTER films.
