When news of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters first broke, two things came immediately to mind ... this is either gonna be ludicrous in the most horrendous of ways or it's just crazy enough to work. Some more star power has jumped on board, and depending on her role, it could easily sway our opinion for the better!
And so it comes to pass. The leads have been cast in Tommy (Dead Snow) Wirkola's upcoming feature Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and the pairing is definitely a good one!
And the hunt for Snake Plissken continues, at least as far as finding an actor to portray the much beloved character in Breck Eisner's remake goes. That's right, kids, apparently we're not as close to finding someone who'll don the patch as we thought.
Ever since director Breck Eisner's remake of Escape from New York was mentioned, the one question instantly on everyone's mind was who in the world could possibly fill Kurt Russell's shoes as the new Snake Plissken?
Some possible and insanely interesting casting news has come out of the Venice International Film Festival, where it sounds like Paramount is pulling out some big guns to star in Tommy Wirkola's Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters.
