Producer Simon Oakes says he is “definitely planning three and four” when it comes to his plan for the adaptation of Susan Hill’s novel, reported Aceshowbiz.
“If your second’s successful, then your third, then you’ve got a franchise. I just don’t believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I’m definitely planning 3 and 4,” Oakes said.
The second film “The Woman in Black: Angels of Death” is slated for UK release on February 13, 2015. Jeremy Irvine is tapped to play the new male lead, with Phoebe Fox and Helen McCrory in supporting roles.
The horror movie is adapted from Susan Hill’s novel of the same title. Tom Harper serves as a director, replacing James Watkins who helmed the first film. Jon Croker writes the screenplay, with Hill helping with the story.
