Jeremy Renner’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Gets A Sequel

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6180:]]

Coming off a $200 million worldwide gross, Paramount pictures has officially announced a sequel for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The movie that saw a spin on the classic children’s fairy tale, and starred Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, bombed locally, but its saving grace was the international audience.

Witch Hunters made less than $20 million in its opening U.S weekend debut and barely $54 million total, but the remaining $150 million was wrought by audiences outside the U.S., most likely the contributing factor to Paramount greenlighting a sequel.

It’s unknown if both Jeremy Renner or Gemma Arterton will be returning, but can most likely be highly assumed.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters had a budget of around $50 million.

Synopsis:

Catching up with Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) 15 years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them.

The Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress (Janssen) who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches’ gathering during the upcoming ‘Blood Moon’ night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer (Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
