During an interview at the Venice International Film Festival Jeremy Renner, still running strong off his performance in THE HURT LOCKER, let it slip that both he and Noomi Rapace (of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) will play the titular characters.
"I think Hansel and Gretel will be awesome. I play him and Noomi Rapace plays Gretel. They have become adults, are damned and going on witch hunting."If this is true, it will certainly provide a little extra power to the intended horror-comedy fantasy that is seeking an EVIL DEAD 2 vibe.
Will industrial band Hanzel Und Gretyl provide the soundtrack? It would seem the only logical choice.
