Famke Janssen Joins Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel and Gretel

You can add Famke Janssen to Paramount’s re-imagined take on the Hansel and Gretel fairytale, since re-christened “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”, which is set to star Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner, with “Dead Snow” guy Tommy Wirkola directing.

No word on what role Janssen will be playing, but with Renner and Arterton already in as Hansel and Gretel, respectively, I imagine Jannsen might end up playing one of the witches that the siblings are hunting. She would certainly make for a statuesque, smoking hot villainous.

Wirkola’s film would chronicle the now-ground up siblings who, post their run-in at the Gingerbread house, have become fearsome witch hunter.
