“The Woman in Black,” starring Daniel Radcliffe, was a surprise hit doing well enough that Hammer Films announced that they were making a sequel. Considering how things ended for some characters that may have seemed a rather difficult task.
The sequel is moving forward, with a script by Jon Croker. ShockTillYouDrop has plot details:
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.
The male main character is being swapped for a female character. James Watkins directed “The Woman in Black,” but no director has been announced for the sequel yet. There also isn’t a release date. Casting news no doubt will be announced in due course.
