Famke Janssen Cast As Witch In HANSEL & GRETEL
Paramount Pictures HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS has found the leader of the witches! Famke Janseen (repped by CAA and Brookside Artists) will join fellow cast members Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in the new picture.
Deadline reports that Janseen signed onto Hansel & Gretel the same day that Julia Roberts also agreed to play a fair tale villain in Relativity Media’s The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.
It is now 15 years after their narrow escape from the witch’s oven and Hansel and Gretel (Renner and Arterton) are now bounty hunters specializing in the hunting and killing of the witches that almost killed them.
Hansel & Gretel will be produced by Gary Sanchez with Tommy Wirkola directing.
