The first still image of Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox in Tom Harper‘s horror sequel “The Woman in Black: The Angel of Death” has been unveiled, via Variety.
The two up and comers take on the leading role duties from Daniel Radcliffe, who starred in last year’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s 1983 ghost story “The Woman in Black.” Also joining them in this latest instalment is fellow Brit actor Helen McCrory (“Harry Potter”).
According to a new press release by Hammer Films, the film will be set four decades after the paranormal events that haunted Radcliffe’s Arthur Kipps at the Eel Marsh House. Due to the dangers of London during World War II, a group of school children and their teacher named Eve (Fox) are evacuated to the English countryside. They find themselves at the Eel Marsh House, where they inevitably become the latest victims of its haunting. With the help of Harry (Irvine), a local military commander, Eve must confront her fears in order to save the children.
“The Woman in Black: The Angel of Death” is based on a story by Hill and is scripted by Jon Croker (“Paddington”). Filming is currently underway for a February 15, 2015 release date in the U.K. A North American release, however, remains unknown. In the meantime, check out the first photo below!
