Peter Stormare cast in HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS has added another new cast member today in Peter Stormare according to Deadline. Yesterday we shared with you that Ingrid Bolsø Berdal had been cast and now Stormare is set to star opposite Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen.
D.W. Harper wrote the reimagined tale which focuses on the brother and sister fifteen years after surviving the ordeal at the gingerbread house and are now full-time witch hunters. Renner and Arterton play the titular siblings, with Berdal playing a “hardcore killing machine" as one of the witches in the pack led by Janssen. Stormare is set to play the role of Berringer, a crooked town sheriff.
I love the addition of Stormare because he is a great character actor and is best suited in bad guy type of roles. This cast is really shaping up and has me excited to see some witches getting their ass kicked. Zombies, Vampires and then witches are on my list in order of evil beings that I enjoy seeing obliterated most. Tommy Wirkola knows how to handle zombies as is evident from DEAD SNOW and I am anxious to see him take on witches come March 2, 2012 when this is released.
