The Woman in Black
has become the most successful British horror
film ever, raking in $120 million from theatrical
release alone, so it’s no surprise that Hammer
are prepping a sequel (and therefore keeping with
another great Hammer tradition).
The producers are teaming with original novel author
Susan Hill, who is writing a story that picks up on
events 40 years later – which presumably means
than Daniel Radcliffe won’t be starring this
Jon Crocker is now working on a screenplay from Hill’s
story, to be called The Woman in Black: Angels
of Death… nicely cumbersome. The story
supposedly follows a couple who have ghostly experiences
in Ell Marsh House, the setting of the first film.
Time alone will tell if this is a Dracula
Prince of Darkness or a Scars
of Dracula in terms of Hammer Horror sequels.
