It has been confirmed by Hammer that they will be making a sequel to the hit horror movie The Woman in Black. Jon Crocker is set to develop a screenplay for the film based on a new and original story by The Woman in Black writer Susan Hill.
Vice-chairman of exclusive media and president & CEO of Hammer Films, Simon Oakes explained, "We are proud and honoured to be working with Susan again on The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death, a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor The Woman in Black."
Meanwhile, co-chairman and CEO of Exclusive Media, Nigel Sinclair added, "It's thrilling to be able to work with someone of Susan's literary calibre on such a fascinating project. It's also fantastic to have Jon on board again to help bring this new story to life on the big screen."
The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death will be set 40 years after the original movie, which starred Daniel Radcliffe. It is unlikely that Daniel Radcliffe will return for The Woman in Black sequel, considering the time difference and considering the outcome of the first movie.
