The first look at Daniel Radcliffe in his Victorian-era get-up for James Watson’s horror film The Woman in Black has landed online. Radcliffe plays a young lawyer visiting a remote English town that holds many ghostly secrets. The film is based off the Susan Hill novel of the same name and was adapted by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass). Production is expected to continue in the UK through December.
Radcliffe will next be seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, which opens on November 19th. Hit the jump to check out the set photo of Radcliffe in The Woman in Black. Click here for Steve’s interview with Goldman where she talks about the project.

Here’s a synopsis for Hill’s ghost story via Amazon:
Set on the obligatory English moor, on an isolated causeway, the story has as its hero one Arthur Kipps, an up-and-coming young solicitor who has come north to attend the funeral and settle the estate of Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. The routine formalities he anticipates give way to a tumble of events and secrets more sinister and terrifying than any nightmare: the rocking chair in the nursery of the deserted Eel Marsh House, the eerie sound of pony and trap, a child’s scream in the fog, and, most dreadfully, and for Kipps most tragically, the woman in black.
