Paramount Plan to Scrap Sequel to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Posted on: October 16th, 2015

hansel and gretel witch hunters posterThis probably isn’t the worst news in the world, because the 2013 Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was only mildly entertaining. However, the film did manage to gross a respectable $170 million overseas. After only managing to make $55 million in the USA, this was a welcome surprise for the film studio. Not so surprising, was the plan to make a sequel. We even reported that Bruno Aveillan was on-board to direct the film. However, it appears that all this has been scrapped and Paramount actually wants to make a television adaptation, rather than push forward with a film sequel.

We’ve always been firm supporters of horror television and the more the merrier. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters could certainly work on TV, as it would leave a lot more time to explore different characters and carry out a lot more witch-hunting. Perhaps a slower pace will benefit the story. If the show is able to maintain the film’s violent, yet fun tone, then we are definitely on-board.

Keep your eyes peeled for news about the cast and director; it’s unlikely that Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner will be reprising their roles now. But, who knows?
