Casting announced for Woman In Black sequel

Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox are set to star in The Woman In Black: Angel of Death, the follow-up to the worldwide box office hit The Woman In Black, which starred Daniel Radcliffe.

Jeremy (represented by Hatton McEwan) shot to fame when he was cast as Albert in Steven Spielberg's War Horse. He has since starred alongside Dakota Fanning in Now Is Good and as Pip in the film adaptation of Great Expectations. He is currently filming The World Made Straight directed by David Burris. His recent film work includes A Night in Old Mexico with Robert Duval, and The Railway Man with Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

RADA-trained Phoebe Fox (represented by Curtis Brown) who was picked as one of Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow 2011 for her theatre performances, recently starred as Grace in ITV2 witch drama Switch.

The Woman In Black:Angel of Death will continue the story four decades later, Eel Marsh House has been seized by the British government during World War II, and the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children awakens its ghostly inhabitant.

Screenwriter Jon Croker (Desert Dancer) wrote the screenplay based on an original story by The Woman in Black author Susan Hill, and the film will be directed by Tom Harper.

Harper said: "Jeremy and Phoebe are fantastic actors to continue The Woman in Black’s chilling tale. I’m looking forward to working with them both on the film, and can’t wait to start shooting with the pair."
