Well, we covered a movie called Humpty Dumpty -- why the hell not do one about Hansel and Gretel. However, I confess ... this sounds eleventy kinds of awesome. Tommy Wirkola, who's behind the yet-unreleased, but extremely exciting-sounding Dead Snow (Nazis? Zombies? Nazi Zombies? SOLD!), has successfully pitched Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, a fantasy/horror/action film about, well, Hansel and Gretel. Fifteen years after the oven incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel are professional witch hunters. It sounds like wild supernatural action as well as a mix of different genres tossed together. Producer Adam McKaye said,

"The idea is, they've grown up and they hunt witches. It's a hybrid sort of old-timey feeling, yet there's pump-action shotguns. Modern technology but in an old style. We heard it and we were just like, 'That's a freakin' franchise! You could make three of those!'"

As long as it's more Evil Dead/Army of Darkness, and less Van Helsing, I think we've got a contender on our hands.
