Paramount is in works for the sequel of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 and they asked writer/director Tommy Wirkola to whip together a follow-up.
“I’ve written the script for it,” Wirkola told the site at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. I’ve given it to Paramount and it’s up to them now. But I don’t know what’s going to happen. Jeremy [Renner] is so busy these days, I don’t know how they’re going to juggle all of that, but it’s up to [Paramount]. We’ll see. Hopefully, I’ll get to do another film first. They really liked the script I gave them. The first film was a learning curve for me working in the studio system and the script I wrote for the original was so different. We ended up taking a lot out and altering stuff that first time. I’m smarter now. I tried taking what I learned and still delivered a sequel script that’s an R-rated action film.”
