It has been officially announced that Sam Claflin is the latest addition to the cast of Hammer’s The Quiet Ones:
“Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer and Guy East and Nigel Sinclair, Co-Chairmen of Exclusive Media, Hammer’s parent company, announced today that Sam Claflin (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES) has signed on to star opposite Jared Harris in THE QUIET ONES.
Claflin will play BRYAN MCNEIL in THE QUIET ONES, a supernatural thriller/horror to be directed by John Pogue (QUARANTINE 2) which James Gay-Rees (SENNA, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP) will produce in association with TPSC Films. With the story and original screenplay by Tom DeVille, revisions by Craig Rosenberg, Oren Moverman and most recently John Pogue, the film is currently in pre-production and will start shooting in June 2012 in the UK.
Inspired by true events, THE QUIET ONES tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic Professor (Harris) 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.”
