Variety reports that The Woman in Black: Angel of Death has begun filming, as Hammer and eOne announced today, and new stills of pic featuring stars Phoebe Fox, Jeremy Irvine and Helen McCrory have been released.
The film is the follow-up to 2012’s The Woman in Black, based on the novel by Susan Hill and starring Daniel Radcliffe, which culled $127 millon in the worldwide box office. Tom Harper is directing and Jon Croker penned the screenplay.
“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.”
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death will be released in the UK Feb. 2015.
