Daniel Radcliffe to Star in Movie Version of The Woman in Black

Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to star in a feature film version of Susan Hill’s novel The Woman in Black, according to Variety. Written by Jane Goldman (Kick Ass) and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), the movie will begin production in the fall, before Radcliffe returns to Broadway in February 2011 to star in a revival of the musical How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying.

A stage adaptation of The Woman in Black by Stephen Mallatratt has been running in London since June 1989. The story centers on young lawyer Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) who is sent to a deceased woman's house in a remote part of England to learn more about her so her affairs can be settled. Kipps learns about the lady's reclusive life and while doing so encounters a mysterious Woman in Black. Years later, he is still terrorized by his experiences in the house.

Radcliffe plays the title role in the Harry Potter film series and made his Broadway debut in Equus.
