Peter Stormare Saddles Up for Hansel And Gretel

Tommy Wirkola’s “Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters” has added Peter Stormare to its cast. According to Deadline, Stormare will be playing the film’s crooked lawman named Berringer.

“Hansel and Gretel” is a re-working of the famous tale about siblings Hansel and Gretel, now all grown up and being played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. After their run-in at the gingerbread house, the siblings have become fierce witch hunters, one of which will be played by former “X-Men” Famke Janssen.

One can only hope that Wirkola’s follow-up to “Dead Snow” doesn’t skimp on the red stuff.
