According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow) will be making Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The film will look at what happened to the siblings 15 years after everything went down in the original story. They are now "specialized bounty hunters" who are on the hunt for bad things.

The film will be made through Gary Sanchez Productions which is owned by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.

"The idea is, they've grown up and they hunt witches," McKay states. "It's a hybrid sort of old-timey feeling, yet there's pump-action shotguns. Modern technology but in an old style. We heard it and we were just like, 'That's a freakin' franchise! You could make three of those!' "
