Michael Bay puts more fairy tales all up in your face with Hansel & Gretel in 3D

07.19.2010

There may be a lot of vampire movies at the moment, but that seems pale (dur-hurr) in comparison to the onslaught of fairy tale projects in the works. Although to be fair, this is the first to have devastation maestro Michael Bay associated with it.

The official word: HANSEL AND GRETEL IN 3D is an action packed visual FX filled version of the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairytale. In addition to the infamous witch in the gingerbread house, the film showcases the legendary creatures of German mythology. These Teutonic beings will be designed by Joseph C. Pepe, the lead character designer from AVATAR. The film is live action.

The movie is being produced by The Institute and Kalliope Films. The Institute was co-founded by Michael Bay and Scott Gardenhour. Kalliope Films was founded by Kira Madallo Sesay. The movie is scheduled for a spring 2011 shoot on location in Germany. Scott Gardenhour and Kira Madallo Sesay are the producers on the film. HANSEL AND GRETEL IN 3D exemplifies The Institute’s motto: "Where Brand Science Meets Great Storytelling."

Extra Tidbit: "The Institute" is apparently short for The Institute for the Development of Enhanced Perceptual Awareness. Or... TIDEPA?

With Bay at the helm...

this means Hansel is really Rambo, Gretel is actually Lara Croft, and the witch is Skynet

hell, my idea already sounds a lot better than this god-awful looking poster/film

I think he's running out of 80's horror classics to remake.

This movie will be filled with quick shots, and explosions every five minutes in the woods.

Wow, so they're just taking any fairy tale they possible can right? What's next? Tortoise and the Hare in 3D? The Little Engine that Could?

Everything was fine until i saw the "groovy" IN 3-D splashed distastefully around the poster. How disappointing.
