THIS piece at ShockTillYouDrop offers a few details about the WOMAN IN BLACK sequel we heard about a while back

Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh Harsh has awoken its darkest inhabitant. Eve, a beautiful young nurse, is sent to the house to care for the patients but soon realizes she must save them from more than their own demons. Despite Eve’s efforts to stop her, one by one they fall victim to the Woman in Black.

I wasn't altogether sold on the notion of a follow-up to THE WOMAN IN BLACK when I initially learned about it - the first film seemed so well-considered and carefully balanced, I kinda hated to have its wonderful aftertaste diluted.   However, I will say that I find the above rather notion interesting and quite promising.  I have a tremendous fascination with both ghosts and World War II, so colliding the conceits here pretty much sends me over the moon.

No word yet on a director for ANGELS OF DEATH, nor the project's ETA.  We do know, however, that Jon Croker will script based upon original ideas developed with WIB novel author Susan Hill.  

More as we know more...
