"Hansel and Gretel" Become Witch Hunters in New Film

Posted: November 12th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hansel and Gretel" Become Witch Hunters in New FilmSubmit Comment
Screenwriter Dante Harper has been hired to re-write the script for "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," which is being pitched as having a gory-but-funny "Shaun of the Dead" vibe.

"Dead Snow" co-writer/director Tommy Wirkola is helming the project for Paramount. The Norwegian helmer pitched and plotted out the story line, which picks up the fairy-tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which provoked them to become witch bounty hunters.

Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are production the new horror/action/comedy. Harper also worked on the screenplay for "Black Hole," which director David Fincher has been developing at Paramount.

Could be good as long as Will Ferrell doesn't have to much influence in this. No role for him either! No cameo - NOTHING. Just have him keep his mouth shut and sign a check

Gilliam already did this with The Brothers Grimm. Not much sense in using the same concept and inevitably arriving at far worse results than the original.

Just to recap: Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Tommi Wirkola? This is going to be awesome. Just saying...

@shay- in "The Brothers Grimm", Hansel and Gretel weren't shown 15 years after as witch bounty hunters. They were barely in the movie anyway. The story has been around for a long, long time. I think we can have two movies within 10 years that feature the same characters in different situations.

What I got out of this: David Fincher is making a movie called Black Hole! SOUNDS AWESOME.

This definately has poetential especially if like evil said Will Ferrell just needs to write a check and shut the f*ck up.

Good!
"Freeway 2: Confessions of a Trickbaby" did the Hansel and Gretel storyline the best I've ever seen.
And the Hansel and gretel comic books were gorey and sexy, so I'm all in favor.

Hansel and Gretel should 'get it on' with one-another and with the captured witches... handcuffed in their dungeons... HAWT! Oh, and make the witches NAZI's! Oh... and a cameo by Brad Pitt and QT! Oh... and Lohan as the first sodomized, captured witch!

but i will totally watch fincher's re-imagining. if it is a remake of the 1979 film by disney of all studios (not under the banner of taouchstone.... marketed as a walt disney adventure... with anthony perkins (i think) getting eviscerated, an army of robots that had once been human etc.... it was actually disney's first pg film with their brand name on it. I don't know if fincher's is a remake... bu it does have the same name. hmmmm. In the end (SPOILER ALERT) the bad guy descends into hell where he becomes trapped inside the belly of an evil robot.
