We haven't heard much on The Woman in Black since April, but filming is now underway and we have news of new additions to the cast, along with the UK release date. Joining Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox is Leanne Best, who was most recently seen on Ripper Street. There's no word on what character she'll be playing, but it has been confirmed that she's currently on the Pinewood set. It is also being reported that Helen McCrory (Skyfall) has joined the cast as well.

There's news of a UK release date via Bleeding Cool and it's going to be a long wait, as it's set to open on February 13th, 2015. A US release date is likely to be positioned around a similar date, but nothing has been announced. Here's the previously issued press release that provides details on the new story and the people involved:

"Jeremy Irvine (WAR HORSE, THE RAILWAY MAN) and British actress Phoebe Fox (‘Black Mirror’, ‘Switch’) have signed on to star in THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH, the next installment in the series of the worldwide box office hit THE WOMAN IN BLACK.
