Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner to star in HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
And the huge news continues to come in.
After GODZILLA and OUIJA have found their respective directors, Paramount has announced their two leads for their upcoming take on the tale of Hansel And Gretel, entitled HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, and I must say, it’s one hell of a pair.
THR is reporting that Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton will lead the upcoming horror comedy, set to be directed by DEAD SNOW helmer Tommy Wirkola.
The film is a rather interesting look at the Hansel and Gretel narrative, finding the siblings 15 years after their iconic gingerbread house “incident.” The pair are now witch bounty hunters, and you really couldn’t ask for two better actors to pick up these roles.
Two of today’s most interesting thespians, both Renner and Arterton should prove to be really fitting for this type of project. I love the premise, and it should be right up the alley for someone like Wirkola. Toss in a really great cast, and you have a film that I can’t wait to check out.
Much more on this one as it comes.
