HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS: Paramount Pictures sequel Coming

Jeremy Renner Gemma Arterton Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters gets a sequel. The Tommy Wirkola vampire and witch film is getting a sequel from Paramount Pictures. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) has been performing very well on the global film market, bringing in over $205.8 Million worldwide so far. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters had a production budget of $50 Million.

The first film starred Jeremy RennerFamke JanssenPeter StormareGemma Arterton, Thomas Mann, Zoe BellIngrid Bolsø BerdalDerek MearsJudy NortonMonique GandertonPihla ViitalaChristian RubeckSebastian Hülk, and Thomas Scharff. It is unclear whether the actors that played the film’s principal protagonists, Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, will return for the sequel. It is also unclear if Tommy Wirkola will return as director for the follow-up film.

The sequel news did not mention a sequel clause in their contracts which leads me to believe that there is not one. That means that both actors are in a great negotiating position at the moment. The people that are known to be returning are the behind-the-scenes people. “Paramount, MGM and MTV Films were behind the first pic, from Gary Sanchez Productions, whose principals Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick are expected to return as producers for the second go-round as is Beau Flynn.”

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters‘ plot synopsis: “15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.”
