WOMAN IN BLACK Now Set for February

Daniel Radcliffe’s post-Harry-Potter career has been busy. He has been starring in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway. He also stars in the upcoming film adaptation of Susan Hill’s 1983 ghost tale, The Woman in Black, now scheduled to open in theaters on February 3. Below the most recent trailer, which was broadcast during the Scream Awards last week.

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.

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

The Woman in Black is currently available in an illustrated edition from Godine. Vintage/Knopf is releasing a movie tie-in in January (an audio version was released by Blackstone in Sept).

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