The first Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was something of a guilty pleasure… it was, ok?
And now the sequel has finally got a director.
Bruno Aveillan, who only has directed commercials so far, will make his big screen debut with the sequel.
Tommy Wirkola, who wrote and directed the first movie, penned this one too and hinted that: “I can only say there’s voodoo involved.”
Apparently the hardest part of getting it going as arranging a schedule that suited Jeremy Renner.
It is assumed the lovely Gemma Arterton will return to pay Gretel to Renner’s Hansel. The original movie was a sequel to the fairy tale that saw the brother and sister grow up fifteen years later as witch hunters. Who would have though a witch trying to cook and eat you would make you so sensitive?!
The movie will be produced by Gary Sanchez Productions’ Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick and Flynn Picture Co.’s Beau Flynn.
More as we get it…
