Hansel and Gretel To Hunt Additional Witches

Upon its release, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was met mostly with critical disdain and general audience apathy in the United States. But in some other countries, it was a different story: they still probably didn't really like the film, but they did at least pay to see it, giving the film a $150 million bump to its lackluster $54 million domestic, and as such, Hansel and Gretel are going to hunt a few more witches in a sequel. Variety reminds us that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay showed off their typically-irreverent sense of humor by producing the original, and are expected to return. Meanwhile, the participation of Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton isn't mentioned either way. One would suspect that will have a lot to do with contract stipulations, but man, it just wouldn't be the same without the stars. So hopefully leather and CGI blood are still attached.
