If HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS was enough to make your stomach churn at the very thought of gingerbread houses, then take solace in the thought that Neil Gaiman’s take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale is set to become a live action movie. 

Based on Gaiman’s soon to be published graphic novel, THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY'S Juliet Blake has signed on as producer, which Gaiman seems quite please about.

"I'm thrilled and delighted to be working with Juliet Blake to bring Hansel and Gretel to the world again, and to show people how much this story has to say to us. For me, retelling Hansel and Gretel was a way of telling an old tale in a way that made it immediate and true, and about us, now. It reminds us of how paper thin civilisation really is. It's about hunger, and about families."

Stay tuned for more news as this project develops.
