Norway’s best zombie/nazi filmmaker Tommy Wirkola (‘Dead Snow’) is currently working on his new Paramount and MGM 3D project ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’. And even after already nabbing ’28 Weeks Later’s Jeremy Renner, ‘Tamara Drewe’ hottie Gemma Arterton (‘St Trinian’s) and ‘X-Men’s Famke Janssen it was about time to bang out some proper witch casting. And the part of the “super bad hardcore killing machine” goes to Miss Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (below), better known to many as Jannicke in the Norwegian slasher flicks ‘Cold Prey’ (AKA ‘Fritt vilt’).
“Catching up with Hansel and Gretel 15 years after their incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into bounty hunters who hunt witches.”
Hansel and Gretel will be kicking witch ass everywhere from 2 March 2012.
