Simon Oakes, vice-chairman of exclusive media and president & CEO of Hammer Films, said: "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 The Woman in Black."

Nigel Sinclair, co-chairman and CEO of Exclusive Media, added: "It's thrilling to be able to work with someone of Susan's literary calibre on such a fascinating project

"It's also fantastic to have Jon on board again to help bring this new story to life on the big screen."



The Woman in Black: Angels of Death will be produced by Exclusive Media, Talisman, Cross Creek Pictures and Alliance Films, and executive-produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment.

Last week, The Woman in Black surpassed the £20 million figure at the UK box office, making it the most successful horror film since records began 20 years ago.

Hammer's Oakes recently called the success of The Woman in Black in the US "amazing".
