With all eyes turned to November 19 and the long-anticipated release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” it only makes sense that Hammer Films decided to release the first official images of Daniel Radcliffe in “The Woman in Black,” Radcliffe’s first film role since hanging up Potter’s wand. We’ve been spending so much time looking back at the man behind the boy wizard over the past few days, it’s a little disconcerting to see him so grown up!
Back in September, some photos were released by The Telegraph that showed Radcliffe filming some scenes from the movie, and these new official photos seem to be the product of that shoot. Just look how mature Radcliffe looks with all that facial hair! Hit the jump for another photo.
It seems like the scene shown in these two photos could take place during the earlier part of the film, where Radcliffe’s character, a lawyer named Arthur Kipps, heads to a remote town to sort out the paperwork of a recently deceased client. He at least looks like he’s intently on his way somewhere.
The film follows Kipps as he is repeatedly haunted by the ghost of a scorned woman and must turn to the townspeople to learn the significance of her appearances. Filming is set to continue through December around the United Kingdom for a 2011 release.
Do you like these new photos? Does it weird you out that Daniel Radcliffe looks so adult?
