Variety is reporting that a trio of indie companies are prepping an alternate take on the Grimm brothers’ classic fairy tale, “Hansel and Gretel”. Duane Journey will direct Black Forest: Hansel and Gretel & The 420 Witch, which concerns “a witch living in Pasadena who lures teens into her house with a special blend of marijuana so she can eat them in order to maintain her youth.” David Tillman penned the screenplay, who must have been high to have come up with this whack idea.
Twilight thesp Michael Welch and “Castle” star Molly Quinn will play the endangered siblings, while Lara Flynn Boyle (Men in Black II) will play the sinister witch.
Production is skedded to start Nov. 12 in Los Angeles.Pictured: Lara Flynn Boyle
