Hammer plans sequel to The Woman In Black

Having seen The Woman In Black become one of Hammer's most successful horror films in years, it should come as no surprise to learn that the studio have set plans in motion for a sequel.

The film has become the highest grossing British horror film of the last 20 years, which is why Hammer are teaming up with author Susan Hill once more to bring follow-up story The Woman In Black: Angels of Death to the big screen.

The same production team will work on the sequel, with screenwriter Jon Crocker currently adapting Hill's story into a workable screenplay.

The story is set some four decades after the events of the first film, and will focus on a couple who find their way to Eel Marsh House, and uncover the evil that lurks there. Watch out for that rocking chair, folks...

At present, there is no word as to whether original director James Watkins will return to direct, but fans of his brand of knuckle-gnawing terror will be keeping their fingers crossed. In any case, it looks like the horror landscape has a shadowy new icon to add to its hall of fame…
