Movie executives are preparing to spook film fans once more with a ghostly sequel to Daniel Radcliffe’s hugely-successful The Woman In Black.
The film, based on the book of the same name by Susan Hill, has become Britain’s highest-grossing horror film ever after raking in more than $33 million in the U.K. and upwards of $120 million worldwide, and now studio bosses at Hammer Films want to cash in on its popularity with a second installment.

Author Hill has penned a sequel to the original novel, The Woman In Black: Angels of Death, which will be adapted for the big screen by Jon Crocker.

Simon Oakes, President and CEO of Hammer Films, says, “We are proud and honored to be working with Susan again on The Woman In Black: Angels Of Death, a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor The Woman In Black.”

It is not yet known if Radcliffe will return for the sequel.
