This was semi-surprising news at first, but the fact that THE WOMAN IN BLACK is getting a follow-up should not be too surprising to anyone who knows that highly profitable movies are always eligible for sequels.

Today it was confirmed via press release that Hammer Films, Alliance Films and Cross Creek Pictures are teaming with WOMAN IN BLACK author Susan Hill on THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGELS OF DEATH.

The new film continues the story of The Woman in Black 40 years later. Jon Croker, who worked as a story editor on the first film, will pen the screenplay. Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment is executive producing.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK, starring Daniel Radcliffe and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), has become the highest-grossing British horror film of the past 20 years, grossing over $33 million in the UK and recently crossing the $120 million box office mark worldwide.

Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer Films said: "We are proud and honoured to be working with Susan again on 'The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death,' a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor 'The Woman in Black.'”

It was far better than I thought it to be, and it was great to see Radcliff test his mettle in this stage of his career. I'm not sure about a sequel, but if it was done with care, sure.

I dug The Woman in Black, hope more good things come out of the re-vamped Hammer Studios in the near future.

I would see another Woman in Black film. The era change is a good idea, for a different era is also a different setting. In this case, the setting might be WWII England in which people are on-edge and facing death already. Or, the time period might be post-WWII England in which people believe and hope that the threat of unnatural death has passed them.

POSSIBLE SPOILER
Who does the biblical Angel of Death claim? Well, children. And, who does the Woman in Black claim? Well . . . HOWEVER,

Did not see that one coming

I really was not expecting that (particularly since the source material never had a sequel, as far as I know).

Still, I'm game. Horror that hits the theaters is all too sparse these days (and I hope that this one does just that).

Should be interesting to see what they do without Daniel Radcliffe's name attached to it (and also where they go with the story).
