Even without knowing the success of The Woman in Black: Angel Of Death, the Tom Harper-directed sequel to the smash-hit The Woman in Black (above with star Daniel Radcliffe), Hammer CEO Simon Oakes tells Total Film that he plans more than a trilogy.
“If your second’s successful, then your third, then you’ve got a franchise,” he tells the UK mag. “I just don’t believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I’m definitely planning 3 and 4…”
So, per usual, success will dictate more sequels, but there are definitely plans for a third and fourth film.
In the soon to be dated sequel, pictured below, “Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh Harsh has awoken its darkest inhabitant. Eve, a beautiful young nurse, is sent to the house to care for the patients but soon realizes she must save them from more than their own demons. Despite Eve’s efforts to stop her, one by one they fall victim to the Woman in Black.“
