Hammer Films’ follow-up to ‘The Woman in Black’, Daniel Radcliffe’s first post-Potter picture, will be titled ‘The Quiet Ones’ and it will star another name that will soon be known to the young adult audience worldwide. Directed by John Pogue, the supernatural thriller will feature ‘Mad Men’ star Jared Harris alongside Sam Claflin, who can be seen in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and the upcoming ‘Catching Fire’, where he’s cast as Finnick Odair.
Here’s a synopsis for this 1970s-set tale:
‘The Quiet Ones’ tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying than they ever could have imagined.”
