Sequel To ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’ Being Developed
  |  @   |  

In one of the more unexpected bits of news in recent memory, Paramount and MGM have decided to begin developing a sequel to the recent action horror-fantasy, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The movie only made $54 million here in the States—not at all a good number for a movie like it. But what it had in its favor was that its production budget was only around $50 million. And one should never underestimate the power of overseas box office numbers; in foreign markets Hansel & Gretel pulled in $150 million, which is why a sequel is now beginning to grow.

It’s not yet known what story the sequel will follow or if stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton will be returning…though it’s safe to assume that they will be.

Who is expected to be involved again are producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Kevin Messick of Gary Sanchez Productions, as well as Beau Flynn.

  1. Guess it doesn’t take much these days to turn over a turd and crisp it on the other side. Sheep will eat anything.

  2. Based on your clever review, “Now, is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters a cinematic triumph?
    Is it destined for a Criterion Collection release? No – it’s an
    absolutely absurd fantasy farce with ambitions solely to entertain. This
    isn’t high art – but it is a fun escape for 88 minutes, with impressive
    production design and creature effects.” I went and had a blast. I would check out a sequel.
