Famke Janssen to lead the evil witches in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

02.09.2011
With all the hubbub lately concerning the two contending Snow White films, it seems we've forgotten about HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, Paramount's foray into the world of re-imagined fairy tales. But no longer!

Joining the already cast Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton will be the delectable Famke Janssen (TAKEN, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND). Renner and Arterton will play the titular siblings that go on to become witch-bustin' bounty hunters, while Janssen will be portraying the leader of said witches.

The dark, action re-telling of the Germanic fairy tale - from DEAD SNOW director Tommy Wirkola - "follows the sibling pair into adulthood, having survived their early encounter with the gingerbread house, and grown into full-time killers of witches."

While no release date has yet been set, Paramount is pushing to have HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS begin production in early March to take advantage of Renner's break between M:I - GHOST PROTOCOL and THE AVENGERS.

I was already excited for this for the casting of Renner and the beautiful Arterton. But with Janssen joining, it only make the anticipation for this movie that much more.

Nice cast so far!

Because of Arterton, Renner and now Janssen I am looking forward to this movie. The story sounds like fun too.

Also Famke should get more roles, she's an underrated actress.
