'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Granted A Sequel

It seems like another film that didn't do so well here in the States is getting a sequel despite it's meager box office take. As per THR, Paramount and MGM have announced today that a sequel to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is in development.

Although the film bombed on U.S. shores by only taking in $54 million at the box office , internationally the film pulled in $150 million which was the inciting factor for giving the project the green-light.

The hit movie starred Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the grown-up fairy tale characters now dedicated to eradicating witches. Currently there is no word as to whether Renner and/or Arterton will make their returns in the sequel.

Stay tuned for more.

This thrills me, i loved the first one. Hopefully, they will do better. To me, they seem to be on par with the Redent Evil franchise money wise. It makes most of its money over seas...but it makes its budget back in the US. Regardless, i cant wait for a sequel, and i hope that both Renner and Arterton return =)
