The Playlist says:
Fairy tale properties are obviously white hot right now, and with three studios currently racing to get their various “Snow White” pictures into production, Paramount is moving ahead confidently with their own, thankfully different, project with another actress joining what is shaping up to be an intriguing cast.
The Playlist has learned that Famke Janssen has joined “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” with reps for the actress confirming her casting in the film. Janssen joins Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner in the dark reboot written by “All You Need Is Kill” writer D.W. Harper, that follows the sibling pairing into adulthood, having survived their early encounter with the gingerbread house, and grown into full-time killers of witches. Janssen’s role in the film is unknown at the moment.
