Gemma Arterton Cast As Lead In HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
This film re-imagines the classic tale of Hansel and Gretel with an action-adventure twist. The film takes place 15 years after the gingerbread house incident. Hansel and Gretel have become bounty hunters that specialize in tracking down and killing witches!
The idea is, they’ve grown up and they hunt witches. It’s a hybrid sort of “old-timey” feeling, yet there’s pump-action shotguns. Modern technology but in an old style. We heard it and we were just like, ‘That’s a freakin’ franchise! You could make three of those!’
