Hansel&Gretel_5_1_17_13

Believe it or not, Paramount Pictures’ 2013 Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was a monster success. Even though it only took in $55M domestically, it turned in $225M worldwide. Not too shabby.

It’s also no surprise that, with a hit like that, Paramount is moving head with a sequel, Paramount Pictures International svp, EMEA Edward Ryan told CineEurope attendees.

Both Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton are presumably attached to return as Hansel & Gretel, two bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. As the fabled Blood Moon approaches, the siblings encounter a new form of evil that might hold a secret to their past.

Tommy Wirkola directed the first film.

    The first one never appealed to me but I gave it a chance because of Famke Jansen. Still didn’t like it. If Famke is involved in the second one, I’m sure it’ll be the same story for me again.

    The witches were the best part, otherwise it was corny as hell. Everybody in the film was using modern day language and ridiculous weapons for that era. Whatever

  • Mistah Vader

    I had exceedingly low expectations for it but I was pleasantly entertained by it. It was entertaining, especially since I was drinking while watching it.

  • Walder Frey

    Awesome movie because of all R-rated petential was released. If sequel will be PG-13 it will be fail as crap. It must be only in style of original one and have great villains (witches, werewolfs and etc).
