It just goes to show, no matter how dreadfully a film can be reviewed*, if it makes enough scratch at the box office, nothing else matters. Money talks and bullshit walks, to quote SPINAL TAP. And so, as HANSEL & GRETEL sails past the $200m mark with ease, Paramount have now officially announced that they will go forward with HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS 2, despite nobody actually wanting one. Including (we presume) star Jeremy Renner, who utterly failed to muster even a flicker of enthusiasm towards the movie during his recent press stints. Don't be surprised if Renner's lawyers are already on the phone trying to get him out of his contract.
We’ll have more on this project as it develops…
