Hansel and Gretel will hunt more witches for Paramount

We pimped the shit out of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters here in The Basement, but have yet to actually see it. I know, we suck.

Wait . . . no we don't! We're just a couple of busy motherfuckers! Wanna fight about it?

Enough people DID see Tommy Wirkola's action/horror flick to convince Paramount Pictures to make a second one. Actually, the film has made more than $200 million worldwide on an alleged budget of about $50 Million. Not bad.

Question is will Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton return. Both are rapidly climbing the Hollywood A-list and might not have time for such silly things as hunting witches. Then again, a franchise is a franchise. And, as Shawn and I discuss this week (Thursday to be exact) more A-listers need to do B-movies. They just do.

In this spin on the fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel are now bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. As the fabled Blood Moon approaches, the siblings encounter a new form of evil that might hold a secret to their past.
