Production Begins on 3D Ghost Thriller THE WOMAN IN BLACK

     May 12, 2010

Hammer Films has begun production on its first 3D film, The Woman in Black.  Written by Kick-Ass co-writer Jane Goldman (above) and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), the ghost story is an adaptation of Susan Hill’s novella of the same name.  Woman in Black is about a young solicitor who goes to settle the estate of a recently deceased elderly widow.  However, strange circumstances surrounding the woman’s town and her past lead to a discovery of a horrible legacy.  We first reported on the story back in February, but now Variety reports that the film will be in 3D.

Steve spoke with Goldman at WonderCon and she excitedly said she’s interested in tackling the Victorian ghost story with a J-horror (Japanese Horror) perspective.  I think that’s a fascinating take on the material and it will be cool to see how Goldman applies a J-horror style to a story that has no connection to Japan or Japanese history.
