Jeremy Irvine On For Angel Of Death
AKA The Woman In Black sequel

Jeremy Irvine

He’s dealt with the horror and terror of war (for War Horse) and the pressure of great expectations (in, er, Great Expectations) but is Jeremy Irvine ready to have the life scared right out of him? He’ll need to be, because he and Phoebe Fox have signed on to star in The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death.

The sequel continues the story four decades on from when Daniel Radcliffe’s Arthur Kipps tangled with the dark secrets lurking within Eel Marsh House. Now the property has been seized by the British government, and turned into temporary accommodation for evacuated children during World War II. Trouble is, the arrival of a group of youngsters awakens the dormant, terrifying spectre…

Jon Croker wrote the script, working from a story by original novelist Susan Hill. Tom Harper is directing and seems upbeat about the casting choices. "Jeremy and Phoebe are fantastic actors to continue The Woman In Black’s chilling tale,” he says in a statement picked up by the Hollywood Reporter. I’m looking forward to working with them both on the film and can’t wait to start shooting with the pair.”

It’s set to start shooting this year and rights will be sold at Cannes. We’d expect brisk business for this one given the success of the first film.

Irvine will next show up in The Railway Man and A Night In Old Mexico, while Fox has largely worked in TV (including Black Mirror and Switch) and had a small role in One Day.
