Filming is currently underway in Pinewood on Hammer Films’ The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, with a UK release slated for February 13, 2015.

It was announced today that “Ripper Street’s” Leanne Best, pictured below, and “Penny Dreadful’s” Helen McCrory, pictured above, have joined the cast that includes Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox.

Tom Harper is directing the sequel to the 2012 smash hit released by CBS Films.

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.
