Jared Harris Joins Hammer Films’ ‘The Quiet Ones’

Following the success of their spooky ghost story ‘The Woman in Black’ starring Daniel Radcliffe (and failure of their ‘Let the Right One In’ remake ‘Let Me In’), British studio Hammer Films has signed actor Jared Harris (‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,’ ‘Mad Men‘) for their latest film, ‘The Quiet Ones.’

According to Empire, Harris has signed on to play a professor who seeks to create a poltergeist using the negative human energy of his students. We imagine this isn’t going to end well for anyone – or at least that’s what we hope.

The film is being directed by John Pogue (‘Quarantine 2′) from a script he’s re-writing. That screenplay has already passed through the hands of the likes of Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman, so this film is already charged with some negative human energy.

‘The Quiet Ones’ begins production in July, and Harris can currently be seen as the charming British account executive Lane Pryce on this season of AMC’s phenomenal ‘Mad Men.’ Harris is the son of Richard Harris, and has built up a resume over the years as one of the best working character actors, appearing recently in such diverse films as ‘John Carpenter’s The Ward’ and David Fincher’s ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.’ It’s great to finally see him achieve leading-man status.
