The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death producer talks expanding the franchise

In issue 215 of Total Film magazine , Hammer CEO Simon Oakes tells us what we should expect from horror sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death .

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad (opens in new tab) , Oakes reveals that it could be just the first follow-up in a potential new franchise.

"If your second's successful, then your third, then you've got a franchise," he says.

"I just don't believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I'm definitely planning 3 and 4..."

Starring Jeremy Irvine and Helen McCrory ( Skyfall ), WIB: Angel Of Death is set 40 years after the film starring Daniel Radcliffe, when Eel Marsh House becomes home to a group of evacuees and their teacher.

The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death opens in the UK on 13 February 2015.
