A look at the priority projects
Without a doubt, World War Z is picking up steam finally. According to the document, execs love the new draft by Matt Carnahan. The film is listed as a “priority.” Brad Pitt will star, as previously reported.
Hansel & Gretel is another film at the studio that has been on our radar. It’s going to be directed by Tommy Wirkola, the man behind Dead Snow. The listing for this one has dropped the “Witch Hunters” subtitle (it was supposed to be Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters). We’ll see if that holds. The document says casting talks have begun and production will begin later this year.
If that happens, it’ll put Dead Snow 2 on hold. Hansel & Gretel is also listed as a priority and “on deck.”
Under the “in development” column is the just announced 7 Minutes in Heaven film.
