WOMAN IN BLACK Teaser Trailer

Daniel Radcliffe’s post-Harry-Potter career includes his current Broadway run in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. He also stars in the upcoming film adaptation of Susan Hill’s 1983 ghost tale, The Woman in Black. A very brief taste is offered in the teaser trailer just released online.

Radcliffe plays a young lawyer, who, while sorting through the papers of a dead client in an appropriately creepy British village, encounters terror and a mysterious woman dressed in black. British author Susan Hill’s book has also been adapted as a play that has been running in London’s West End since 1989.

[UPDATE: The movie is now scheduled for release in the US on 2/3/12, according to IMDB]

Radcliffe is also attached to star in a new adaptation of All Quiet on the Western Front, planned for 2012.

For those of you suffering Harry Potter separation anxiety as the series draws to a close on July 12th, a behind-the-scenes Deathly Hallows documentary is in the works.

The Woman in Black is currently available in an illustrated edition from Godine. Vintage/Knopf is releasing a movie tie-in in September (an audio version is coming from Blackstone).

Hill is also known for her Simon Serrailler mystery series, published in the U.S. by Overlook Press.
