Chris de Burgh Rumored to be Writing the Theme Song: Woman in Black Trailer
The play is a bit of an oddity, and a very successful one at that, having run for over twenty years now at London's West End. It tells a story within a story, in which the protagonist from the other versions is now an old man who is staging a play of the events he experienced as a youth. The play thus tells two stories: a retelling of the original story of the haunting along with a return of the ghost during the staging of the play.
The new film version starring Daniel Radcliffe is set for a February release, and looks like it stays faithful to the novel rather than the play. The trailer is remarkably effective at setting up the mood and tension of an old school ghost story, though we'll have to wait to see the finished film before we can be sure it doesn't devolve into endless jump scares and cliches.
