TV: Another Revisionist Take On Hansel & Gretel, ‘Witchslayer Gretl’, Gets A Teaser

Originally scheduled for November, and originally titled Gretl, Witchslayer Gretl is now set to debut on the Syfy Channel February 25th at 9/8C. I’m sure the genesis of the project has nothing to do with the high profile Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters (starring Jeremy Renner) that recently got bumped to next year. There’s also Black Forest: Hansel And Gretel & The 420 Witch coming out this year. For my sanity’s sake, let’s cap it at three for now, okay?

In the Syfy version starring Shannen Doherty, “As an adult, a witch hunter (Hansel) returns to the village where he lived as a child to find and kill the witch who killed his sister, Gretl (Doherty), only to find that Gretl is not dead and danger lurks around every corner.

John Boylan, Sarain Boylan and Jefferson Brown, round out the cast with Erica Cox, Marianthi Evans, Sophia Ewaniuk, Nahanni Johnstone, and Daniela Lazzaro.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser.
