Hammer’s The Woman In Black series is giving another sophomore helmer a shot. Tom Harper, who’ll direct follow-up Angel Of Death, has mostly worked in UK TV with 2009’s The Scouting Book For Boys his only feature. Before James Watkins directed this year’s $130M-grossing Daniel Radcliffe-starrer Woman In Black, he had only one feature under his belt, too. Angel Of Death has yet to cast but will reunite the entire production team from the original. The new film is set 40 years after Woman In Black during World War II, when the government has seized the eerie Eel Marsh House and a group of evacuated children arrive to awaken its scary tenant. Exclusive Media, Talisman, Cross Creek Pictures and Alliance Films are producing and Roy Lee of Vertigo is exec producing. Jon Croker, a story editor on the first film, wrote the screenplay developed by Hammer and Talisman Productions from an idea by The Woman In Black author Susan Hill. As with the first film, Exclusive is handling sales and Alliance has rights in the UK, Spain and Canada.
