Tommy Wirkola is done with Nazi-zombies. At least for the time being. Even though his last movie, Dead Snow (review), was a hit with most fans, the young filmmaker has decided to go for a less absurd subject for his next film – Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters!
The Hollywood Reporter learned tonight that Wirkola is prepping a film that will focus on how things worked out for the famous siblings fifteen years after that whole bit of nasty witch trying to eat them stuff.
Wirkola is currently hard at work on an outline for the producers at the Paramount-based Gary Sanchez Productions (run by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay). Even at this super-early stage Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is being groomed as a potential franchise and is said to have a Shaun of the Dead and Evil Dead 2 type vibe.
Dead Snow will be released here in the States by IFC on June 12th.
