Hansel and Gretel Witch Hungers

Hollywood is bound to run out of good fairy tales to adapt sooner or later, but of course even that doesn’t have to spell the end of the fairy tale reimagining trend. As long as sequels are still a thing, each one of these adaptations can be stretched out into a franchise. And that’s precisely what’s happening with one that opened earlier this year.

Despite a talented cast and an outrageous premise, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters failed to make much of an impression in the U.S. when it hit theaters two months ago. But it’s had much better success overseas, and as of today has earned a worldwide total of $205 million, or four times its $50 million budget. So you can probably guess where this is headed next. Paramount has just announced that it is pushing ahead with a Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters sequel. Hit the jump for more info.

Tommy Wirkola‘s first US film, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, was no critical fave, but it has done over $100m worldwide so far. Now Wirkola is heading back to Norway to make a sequel to his breakout film, Dead Snow. The new one is Dead Snow: War of the Dead, which will follow “the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of the Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the US.”

The movie will be released in English and Norwegian versions, says ScreenDaily, and the film should shoot later this year. Wirkola said, “We have a script that I am super excited about, which is bigger, scarier, funnier, more action-filled and gorier than the previous one, and I can’t wait to unleash another horde of undead Nazi zombies onto the world again.”

After the break, you’ll find the following:

  • The Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy sequel Smiley’s Game moves forward,
  • Transformers visual effects supervisor returns for Transformers 4,
  • Rambo V and The Expendables 3 in the works at the European Film Market,
  • Rooney Mara denies that Daniel Craig will be cut from The Girl Who Played With Fire,
  • Summit debuts a new Red 2 poster,
  • and shots appear from Insidious 2 and Riddick.

The fairy tale trend continues in full swing in 2013, with Tommy Wirkola‘s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters kicking things off later this month. Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton star as the titular siblings, now all grown up and exterminating witches for profit. (Though, as Gretel mordantly notes, “we’d do this shit for free.”)

Earlier trailers have showcased the dark side of witch hunting and the twisted sense of humor that comes with it. The latest red-band connect some dots by laying out the plot and delving into the siblings’ sad past. Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, and Zoe Bell also star. Watch it after the jump.

2012 saw a couple of high-profile fairy tale releases, but the trend is really just getting started. 2013 has a couple such titles due out in just the first three months, including Tommy Wirkola‘s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters in January and Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Slayer in March.

Of course, that’s not to say there aren’t promising non-fantasy movies due out as well. One we’re especially looking forward to is Side EffectsSteven Soderbergh‘s possibly final theatrical release. Check out new posters for all three films after the jump.
