Famke Janssen Casts Her Spell On <i>Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters</i>

Hot on the heels of that Brothers Grimm: Snow White casting news comes word from The Playlist that Famke Janssen will star in another fairy tale adaptation, Paramount Pictures’ Hansel & Gretel: The Witch Hunters.

According to Deadline, the X-Men actress will play the leader of the villainous witches opposite Jeremy Renner’s Hansel and Gemma Arterton’s Gretel in director Tommy Wirkola’s dark action film.

D.W. Harper’s script follows the fairy-tale siblings into adulthood, 15 years after they survived their chilling encounter in the gingerbread house. Now grown, they’ve become highly specialized bounty hunters on the search for witches.

Hansel & Gretel has a very tight production window: Tommy Wirkola reportedly wants to begin production on March 7 to accommodate Renner, who has just eight weeks between the completion of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the April start of The Avengers.
