It was kind of inevitable that, after producing the biggest selling British movie of the past twenty years, you would want to follow suit with a sequel.
Hammer Films are doing just that. The studio has commissioned author Susan Hill to write a story set forty years after the events of The Woman in Black.
However they are keen to call it the 'next installment' rather than simply a sequel. This is patently the beginning of a whole movie franchise.
All that is known so far is that the plot will follow a young couple moving into Eel Marsh House. Presumably no-one warned them that one of the previous occupants hadn't yet vacated the premises.
