We've known for a while that a sequel to 2012's THE WOMAN IN BLACK was coming our way and learned in April that Jeremy Irvine (the lead in Steven Spielberg's WAR HORSE) and Phoebe Fox ("Switch") had landed the two lead roles. Today we have two more names to add to the cast list as well as word on when the film will see a UK release, so read on!
“Ripper Street’s” Leanne Best and “Penny Dreadful’s” Helen McCrory have joined the cast of THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH, with Tom Harper directing the sequel to the 2012 smash hit released by CBS Films. Filming is currently under way in Pinewood on the Hammer Films production with a UK release slated for February 13, 2015.
As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House.
One by one the children begin acting strangely, and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and survive The Woman in Black.
Original WOMAN IN BLACK author Susan Hill conjured up the story for ANGEL OF DEATH, which was writen by Jon Croker.
