Tom Harper has signed on to direct the horror sequel The Woman in Black: Angels of Death for Hammer Films. We first reported on the project in April, when Jon Croker signed on to write the screenplay.
The story will take place 40 years after the events portrayed in The Woman in Black, following a group of evacuated children who arrive at the Eel Marsh House during World War II. The script will be based on an original story by The Woman in Black author Susan Hill.
Roy Lee will serve as executive producer for Vertigo Entertainment, which is co-producing alongside Exclusive Media, Talisman, Cross Creek Pictures, and Alliance Entertainment. No production schedule was given.
