When Daniel Radcliffe Is Done With Voldemort, He'll Take on Angry Ghost

Daniel Radcliffe cannot seem to get away from those angry supernatural spirits.

Now that he's filmed his final scenes with arch-enemy Voldemort in the "Harry Potter" series, Radcliffe will prepare to do battle with an angry ghost in the movie version of "The Woman in Black," according to a release from the production company.

Radcliffe will play Arthur Kipps, who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of the UK and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As in all great movies in remote corners of the UK, the place is haunted and Kipps finds the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman bent on vengeance. Production is expected to begin in the fall.

The movie is based on a 1983 thriller fiction novel and has been adapted to a now classic play which has played on London's West End since 1989.  The story will get a kick from screenwriter Jane Goldman ("Kick Ass") and the film will be directed by James Watkins ("Eden Lake").

Watkins promised "a classy ghost story that tugs at the heart and chills to the bone." Radcliffe will be a key factor in the first two major factors of this promise, the ghost will have to handle the third.

Not to worry, Radcliffe will continue to move out of the spirit world. He is set to hit Broadway in "How to Succeed  in Business Without Even Trying" in spring of 2011.
