Exclusive Media has announced that "Mad Men" and "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" star Jared Harris will take the lead role in the upcoming film. Originally penned by Tom DeVille, with revisions by Craig Rosenberg, Oren Moverman and most recently John Pogue (the "Quarantine 2" helmer who will step behind the camera here) the inspired-by-true-events story will follow an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. Yup, sounds like a Hammer movie, and we presume things won't go as planned for the professor.
Production is gearing up to kick off in June, which means another Hammer movie in 2013. And if it can deliver the same quality scares as "The Woman In Black," we'll be there.
