Renner, Rapace are Wirkola’s Hansel & Gretel?


From the director of Dead Snow

Jeremy Renner of The Hurt Locker and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s Noomi Rapace are Hansel and Gretel, respectively, in Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

So says Renner, who told Twitch Film at the Venice International Film Festival.

Last month, we told you “casting talks” had begun for Witch Hunters. Looks like Wirkola – who previously directed Dead Snow – has found his leads. How this will fit into Renner’s busy schedule – he’s prepping to shoot The Avengers at some point – is unknown.

Paramount will produce the project.
