Well, it hasn't taken long for Hammer Films to decide to try and keep the money train going on what is easily their most financially successful project to date. The solid, old fashioned horror flick "The Woman In Black" opened this winter not only to mostly good reviews, but solid box office, opening #2 in the U.S. but also doing oustanding business in its native U.K. and when the receipts were all tallied up, the movie took in over $110 million. Not too shabby at all. So of course, a sequel is now calling.

Well, it hasn't taken long for Hammer Films to decide to try and keep the money train going on what is easily their most financially successful project to date. The solid, old fashioned horror flick "The Woman In Black" opened this winter not only to mostly good reviews, but solid box office, opening #2 in the U.S. but also doing oustanding business in its native U.K. and when the receipts were all tallied up, the movie took in over $110 million. Not too shabby at all. So of course, a sequel is now calling.

Deadline reports Hammer, Alliance Films, Cross Creek Pictures and author Susan Hill are all teaming on "The Woman In Black: Angels Of Death." And basically, they are turning this into a creature based series. The followup will be set forty years later, when in a couple move into the eerie remote mansion from the first movie and of course, spooky things start happening. Yawn. Here's hoping they keep the eerie atmosphere and tone that made the first movie so special intact, but somehow, we doubt it.

Story editor Jon Croker has been upgraded to screenwriter for the sequel, and yeah, in case it wasn't obvious, Daniel Radcliffe isn't returning. And in case it isn't obvious, just watch "The Woman In Black" to find out why.
