This past spring, Hammer Films announced that it is developing The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, a sequel to the horror/thriller that starred Daniel Radcliffe. The first film was Radcliffe’s first major non-Harry Potter role, and interest in the actor helped push the picture to a gross of over $100m worldwide. The fact that the film wasn’t bad at all didn’t hurt, either.

Fingers crossed that the sequel to The Woman in Black, to be called The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, will have an era-appropriate cover of Slayer’s most famous song buried somewhere in the story. (Seems unlikely, but one can hope. I’ll probably have to just be happy with the song’s use in Gremlins 2.)

Jon Crocker is developing the script based on a story by Susan Hill, who also wrote the tale upon which the first film was based. But will Daniel Radcliffe return? Big spoilers follow for those who haven’t seen The Woman in Black. Read More »
