It is announced earlier today that filming for Dan's supernatural thriller The Woman in Black would begin on September 26, 2010 at Pinewood Studios, the same location many scenes from the Harry Potter films, especially Deathly Hallows. Hammer Films, who is producing the movie, confirmed the start date via their official Twitter (thanks: SS.com)
“We were doing auditions for my son yesterday which was bizarre,” the actor exclusively tells Total Film. “But it’s very exciting and James Watkins is fantastic. He might kill me for telling you this, but he’s actually started working with an acting coach to give him a better idea of how to approach stuff with actors.
“Which is a brilliant thing – I don’t know of any other directors doing that. He’s inspired and we’re uncannily on the same page about the film. We met and we agreed that this film is not a scary movie but a film about loss and family and grief.”
