MTV caught up with Adam McKay, producer on Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which explores how things played out for the poor siblings 15 years after that whole gingerbread house incident. Simply put, they’re now specialized bounty hunters looking to put down the cackling black-hat set. The producer revealed that the script is done and carries “a steampunk vibe mixed with a little bit of a goth edge and hyper-cartoon violence like ‘Kick-Ass’, ” adding, “It’s not a comedy…It’s like a Sam Raimi-type horror movie, like ‘Evil Dead II,’ only a little nastier, a little more modern.” He also reveals that offers were made to some of the Twilight cast (why, I don’t know) and that shooting is slated to begin this fall. I personally think Dead Snow is overrated crap, but with a little guidance I think Wirkola could deliver a solid genre pic. I’m looking forward to this.
