“WOMAN IN BLACK” sequel casts leads


Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox (he, of WAR HORSE and she, of BBC series BLACK MIRROR) will lead the sequel to last year’s old-fashioned ghost story from Hammer Films.

In keeping with the atmospheric, period setting of the James Watkins-directed first, THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH will be based in World War II as Eel Marsh House is converted into a shelter for evacuated children. Of course, that’s who the titular specter of Susan Hill’s classic novel most readily preys upon.

UK filmmaker Tom Harper, who’s mainly toiled in television (including two episodes of the incredible sequel miniseries THIS IS ENGLAND ’86) helms, while Jon Croker scripts.
