Confirmed: Paramount Pictures Developing Sequel To HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
After passing $200M worldwide, Paramount has confirmed that a follow-up to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (which stars The Avengers' Jeremy Renner and Clash Of The Titans' Gemma Arterton) is in development.
Despite crossing the solid $200 million mark at the worldwide box office, Paramount Pictures' 3D fantasy horror Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (which currently has a 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes) ended up underperforming North America. With a $50-83M budget, the Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arteron starrer opened with a lower than expected $18M domestically, and it is currently approaching $55M. With this news, it should come as little surprise that a follow-up is being planned. Via Deadline, Paramount has confirmed that a Hansel & Gretel sequel is in development. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Beau Flynn and Kevin Messick are expected to return as producers. No word on whether or not writer-director Tommy Wirkola will return. Are you happy with this news?
