Daniel Radcliffe might truly be the boy who lived. After the final "Potter" flick wrapped, the future of its titular character remained unclear: would Radcliffe ever be more than Potter? And now, it seems, the answer is yes.
Radcliffe did a bang up job (if you ask us) as a young lawyer in slightly over his head in the 2012 hit thriller, "The Woman in Black." Now, just before the original releases on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK, there are rumblings of a sequel—and Radcliffe's possible return to the budding franchise.
Hammer's CEO, Simon Oakes, announced, "We are working on not a sequel but a continuation of 'The Woman in Black.'" (OK, so we thought a sequel was a continuation of the story, but we stand corrected.) "Susan Hill wrote an outline story about what happened 40 years later to the woman in 'The Woman in Black' and the house and all of that. It's completely different. It's completely different."
It must be completely different since he bothered to say that part twice, right?
So, what happened to the woman? As Bleeding Cool recounts, "Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh House has awoken its darkest inhabitant. Eve, a beautiful young nurse, is sent to the house to care for the patients, but soon realizes she must save them from more than their own demons. Despite Eve’s efforts to stop her, one by one they fall victim to the Woman in Black."
And where does Radcliffe fit in? Oakes teased the Radcliffe could return. He did make it sound like the role would be on the small side, but that could always change later. All he would say, definitively on the subject, was that Radcliffe "might" return. Which really isn't that definitive at all. But our fingers are crossed that he does, because if anyone can deal with that black-wearing chick, it's him.
