HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS gets a new Screenwriter

Movieby Joey Paur


This Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters film project sounds pretty freakin awesome if you ask me, and a new screenwriter by the name of Dante Harper has been hired to help out with writing the script. Helming this awesome sounding movie is director Tommy Wirkola, the co-writer and director of the Zombie Nazi flick, Dead Snow.

The project is being set up at Gary Sanchez Prods. and Paramount. Wirkola pitched and plotted out the story line, which picks up the fairy-tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which provoked them to become witch bounty hunters.

Sanchez execs Kevin Messick, Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy are producing the horror-action comedy, which is pitched as having a gory-but-funny Shaun of the Dead vibe. Harper also worked on the Cronenberg-esque screenplay for Black Hole, which director David Fincher has been developing at Paramount.

I can't wait for this flick to get made. It sounds like it will be a fun film to watch.
