LONDON — Hammer has set U.K. helmer Tom Harper to lense the sequel to its $130 million worldwide grosser “The Woman in Black.”

“The Woman in Black: Angel of Death” will pick up the story four decades after the events of the first film, setting the story during World War II with the arrival of a group of evacuee children at Eel Marsh House.
