Yesterday brought us some new casting news for THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH, the sequel to 2012's Daniel Radcliffe-starring hit THE WOMAN IN BLACK, as “Ripper Street’s” Leanne Best and “Penny Dreadful’s” Helen McCrory signed on for the supernatural shocker. Today Variety has learned that the film has begun filming and we've got the first stills from the Tom Harper-directed sequel to share with you below.
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. THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH will be released in the UK in February 2015.
Below you will find the first stills from the sequel featuring stars Phoebe Fox, Jeremy Irvine and Helen McCrory.
