Jeremy Irvine has signed on to star in The Woman Of Black sequel, Angel Of Death.
The War Horse star will appear opposite Phoebe Fox in the second Woman in Black film, reported Screen Daily.
Director Tom Harper said: "Jeremy and Phoebe are fantastic actors to continue The Woman In Black's chilling tale. I'm looking forward to working with them both on the film and can't wait to start shooting with the pair."
The follow-up to the 2012 horror, starring Daniel Radcliffe, continues the story four decades later, when the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children at Eel Marsh House, after it was seized by the government during World War II, awakens its darkest inhabitant.
Jon Croker has written the screenplay, which is based on the original story by Susan Hill.
The Woman In Black, which was directed by James Watkins, was the highest grossing British horror film of the past 20 years, making more than 130 US dollars worldwide.
Jeremy, who starred in Great Expectations and Now Is Good after making his big screen debut in Steven Spielberg's War Horse, will next be seen in The Railway Man alongside Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
He will also be in the The World Made Straight film, based on Ron Rash's novel, and in One Night In Old Mexico.
