Principal filming is now underway for Hammer’s The Quiet Ones which stars Mad Men and Fringe actor Jared Harris and Brit actor Sam Claflin.
The film also stars Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne.
Inspired by true events, it tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and embroils his best students in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.
The film is being directed by John Pogue and produced by James Gay-Rees from a story and original screenplay by Tom DeVille and is being produced in association with TPSC Films.
The start of principal photography was announced by Simon Oakes, President & CEO of Hammer and Vice Chairman of Exclusive Media.
Speaking about the film in April Oakes said it was “set to be an incredibly chilling and sinister picture that we are proud to be a part of.
“It’s another unique horror movie which we believe will appeal to audiences around the world.”
The Quiet Ones is Hammer’s first production after the worldwide box office hit, The Woman in Black, which starred Daniel Radcliffe and has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date.
Hammer is working on a sequel, The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death, as well as a film based on the story of the Winchester Mystery House – considered the “world’s most haunted house”.
