'The Woman In Black' sequel announced

April 4, 2012 - London

'The Woman In Black', which starred Daniel Radcliffe, is going to be made into a sequel, after its first instalment became the highest-grossing British horror film of the past 20 years.

The first flick, which featured the 'Harry Potter' star, has made 75 million pounds worldwide so far, the BBC reported.

Hammer Films will produce the movie, adapted from a story by author Susan Hill which follows a couple encountering the haunted Eel Marsh House.

'The Woman in Black', which was directed by James Watkins and adapted by 'Kick-Ass' screenwriter Jane Goldman, sat at the number one spot at the UK box office for three weeks.

The new film will be adapted by Jon Crocker.

"We are proud and honoured to be working with Susan again on The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death, a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor," Hammer Films president Simon Oakes said.
