Daniel Radcliffe's "The Woman in Black" will continue with "The Woman in Black: Angels of Death," which Hammer Films, Alliance Films and Cross Creek Pictures say is not a sequel but the next installment in a series. The first installment went on to be the highest-grossing British horror film in the past twenty years. "Angels of Death" picks up forty years later with author Susan Hill's original story; Jon Croker is developing the screenplay. Hammer Films calls the project "a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor 'The Woman in Black.'” While "Angels" is a continuation (see synopsis below), Radcliffe and director James Watkins are not currently attached to the project.

Daniel Radcliffe's "The Woman in Black" will continue with "The Woman in Black: Angels of Death," which Hammer Films, Alliance Films and Cross Creek Pictures say is not a sequel but the next installment in a series. The first installment went on to be the highest-grossing British horror film in the past twenty years. "Angels of Death" picks up forty years later with author Susan Hill's original story; Jon Croker is developing the screenplay.

Hammer Films calls the project "a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor 'The Woman in Black.'” While  "Angels" is a continuation (see synopsis below), Radcliffe and director James Watkins are not currently attached to the project.

The Woman in Black was set in the early 1900’s and based on the tale of a young lawyer who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of the UK, to sort out the papers of a recently deceased client. In the eerie setting of Eel Marsh House he discovers the vengeful ghost of The Woman in Black.  This next instalment, The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death, will continue this story four decades later and focus on the concept of a couple and the experience they have when they encounter the haunted setting of Eel Marsh House.
