Famke Janssen has joined the cast of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. The re-imagining of the Grimm fairy tale that has the brother and sister (played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton) as adults who survived their encounter at the gingerbread house and have become full-time witch-slayers. The script is from All You Need Is Kill screenwriter D.W. Harper, and Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow) will direct. The Playlist originally confirmed the casting, and Deadline reports that Janssen will play the leader of the witches.
Filming is slated to begin March 7th in order to accommodate the small window of time in Renner’s schedule when he’s wrapped on Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol but hasn’t yet begun work on The Avengers.
