Deadline reports that Ciaran Hinds and Janet McTeer are joining “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe in the James Watkins-directed supernatural thriller The Woman in B/lack. Hinds and Radcliffe just starred together in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
According to the site, “Hinds will play the local landowner who counsels Daniel Radcliffe as he investigates this Victorian mystery… McTeer will play Hinds’ on-screen wife, Mrs Daily.”
Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass) adapted the novel, which follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of the UK and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in an old and isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover its tragic secrets, and his unease grows when he discovers that the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance.
