Hammer Films have been working on the follow-up ever since The Woman in Black was released from a story idea by original author Susan Hill with Jon Croker (Desert Dancer) handling the screenplay.
Now BAFTA nominated director Tom Harper (The Scouting Book for Boys) has signed on to direct Angel of Death, the next installment of the worldwide box office hit.
A recent press release neither confirms nor denies that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) will be reprising his role in a sequel to Hammer horror, which will continue the story four decades later.
I am thrilled to be a part of The Woman in Black: Angels of Death.This will be a great opportunity for me to collaborate with a brilliantly talented team on the next installment in this exciting series.
Production is due to commence in spring of 2013.
There has been no word on casting yet.
