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!
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.
BAFTA-nominated Tom Harper (The Scouting Book for Boys, Misfits) will direct The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, the sequel to horror smash The Woman in Black (review), starring Daniel Radcliffe, that was adapted from a Susan Hill story.
Here is the beauty of the horror genre. Filmmakers challenge themselves to do things differently. We've seen, for example, movies made with a zero dollar budget or taken in a single shot. You never see that in other genres. You don't see anybody trying to find a unique way to shoot a buddy comedy. Only in horror do you get these unique approaches to filmmaking. And we've got a real winner for you with The Swarm.
