The 2012 box-office hit, The Woman in Black which featured Daniel Radcliffe in his first major role since the Harry Potter series, grossed over $130m (£83.6m) worldwide. There was much dispute in the UK over the film classification of the first film, which was rated originally rated as a 15, but after a few seconds of footage were cut, it was brought down to a 12A, some parents said it was ‘too scary’.
With the second film in the works, the title and some casting news was announced this week. The film will be a continuation of the events in the previous film, forty years on, when a group of children are evacuated to Eel Marsh House from London, during WWII.
The horror which is set to be released in 2014; is called The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. As far as casting goes, Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) and Phoebe Fox will take the lead roles in the film, there’s no word as of yet, when filming will start.
