Daniel Radcliffe The Woman in Black...

Daniel Radcliffe, also known as Harry Potter, is set to star in Hammer Films and Alliance Films' adaptation of Susan Hill's best-selling novel The Woman in Black. The film will share the same title and will be directed by James Watkins and written by Jane Goldman. Radcliffe will be portraying Arthur Kupps, a young lawyer who goes to a remote place to read up on a recently deceased client's papers only to find out that she is haunting the village he is staying in. 

"When I met Dan, it was quite uncanny how closely our thoughts on the story mirrored each other: I can't wait to get down to work with him to fashion a compelling character and a classy ghost story that tugs at the heart and chills to the bone," said Watkins.
"We're thrilled to have Daniel on board, I can think of no better actor to play the role of Arthur Kipps. I'm confident that under the direction of James Watkins, he'll take Jane Goldman's script and deliver an utterly intense and compelling performance" Simon Oakes from Exclusive said.
Here is what Radcliffe had to say, "I am incredibly excited to be part of 'The Woman in Black.' Jane Goldman's script is beautifully written - both tender and terrifying in equal measure. It is thrilling to be working with James Watkins. From his brilliant work on 'Eden Lake' and also having met him and heard his vision for the film, I know he will make a fantastic film."

Production is expected to begin this fall.  What do you guys think? What do Harry Potter fans think?
