Any news on James Watkins’ The Woman in Black is good news, and todays news of a brand new poster is very good indeed. The new poster, published yesterday, has Daniel Radcliffe’s face once again prominent, but there are also a number if images from the actual film dotted around him as well. Already dubbed “one of the scariest films of 2012′, I have no doubts at all that this classic looking ghost story will deliver everything we hoped for.
James Watkins (Eden Lake) transforms Daniel Radcliffe in what looks like one incredible performance, and he will be supported by Janet McTeer, Ciaran Hinds, Roger Allam and Sophie Stuckey. The film is based on the chilling novel written by Susan Hill, and Jane Goldman has written the screenplay.

Based on the classic ghost story, THE WOMAN IN BLACK tells the tale of Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a lawyer who is forced to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend to the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House.
Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to uncover the town’s tragic and tortured secrets and his fears escalate when he discovers that local children have been dying under mysterious circumstances. When those closest to him become threatened by the vengeful woman in black, Kipps must find a way to break the cycle of terror.
