With The Woman In Black doing so well for Hammer Films, all eyes are on the company to see what they have next for us, and it appears as if they are still treading on supernatural ground as their latest flick is The Quiet Ones.
According to Screen Daily, Jared Harris (‘Mad Men’) is set to star in the supernatural thriller The Quiet Ones for Hammer Films. He will “play an unorthodox professor who makes his students take part in a dangerous experiment to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.”
The film is being directed by John Pogue from an original screenplay by Tom De Ville, it is said to be based on true events which took place in Canada in the 70′s.
Simon Oakes, president & CEO of Hammer told the site that, “It was important for us to make this movie in the UK and to celebrate the Britishness of the brand. Hammer is a legendary British brand and that’s the way we intend to keep it,”
The film is said to be in pre-production with shooting commencing this June 19th.
