Famke Janssen joins Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner in Hansel & Gretel
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Continuing with the fairy tale trend, Paramount Studios is moving forward with casting for the upcoming HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS. They’ve already snagged Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner who will play brother and sister, and today we learn they have cast Famke Janssen (X-MEN) for a role not yet known. HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS follows the siblings as they move into adulthood with a chip on their shoulder for almost being eaten by a witch. No release date has been set, but production is supposed to begin early March.
I think this film has a lot of potential to be a really fun action flick, with hopefully not too much CGI involved. Let’s just hope the two Snow White films don’t bomb before this one comes to theaters therefore making everyone hate the fairy tale adaptations coming up.
