In some of the most obvious news of the day, Hammer revealed that it isn't just thinking about one sequel to The Woman in Black (due in UK cinemas next year), they're talking about a prospective franchise.
Legendary British production company Hammer Films has been experiencing a big time revival in the last several years, with last year's The Woman in Black scaring up big numbers at the box office.
Things have been relatively quiet on the front of Hammer's The Woman in Black: Angel of Death lately, but that's all about to change. Read on for the latest casting news and more!
At the end of 2009 the film rights to Lauren Kate's Fallen, which puts two fallen angels in a love triangle with a shy teenage girl, were snapped up, but then it was dead silence about the first of a hopeful four-part franchise. Finally, now we know the director and first two cast members.
We make no bones about it: The Woman in Black is one of our favorite ghostly tales here at Dread Central so we're eager to see where the Hammer sequel will be taking our favorite child-snatching spectre. For now, though, the first casting news has come.
