The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox in her first leading role in a feature film, having previously worked with Tom Harper on War Book. Fox is joined by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations, The Railway Man), the award-winning Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Hugo, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows) and rising star Oaklee Pendergast (The Impossible).
The Woman in Black: Angel Of Death continues the original film’s story: four decades have passed since Arthur Kipps, as played by Daniel Radcliffe, travelled to Eel Marsh House – and now, a group of children are evacuated with their teachers from the perils of Blitz-era London. The group soon awakens Eel Marsh House’s darkest inhabitant.
Directed by Tom Harper (The Scouting Book For Boys, War Book, ‘Peaky Blinders’), the screenplay by Jon Croker (Desert Dancer) is based on an original story outline by Susan Hill, author of The Woman in Black. Hammer and Entertainment One (eOne) are set to release The Woman in Black: Angel of Death in the UK on Friday 13th February 2015.
