Hansel and Gretel will once again get a new adaptation that will lead to horror. In addition to announcing where they took the picture taking process, the Orion Pictures production house also reported that the film was directed by Osgood Perkins and Rob Hayes was in charge of writing the script. They also gave a little synopsis about this film.
Lilis is Beverly’s actor in a successful horror film, IT. He will also re-appear in his second film, IT: Chapter Two, with Jessica Chastain who will play an adult version of him. And after he had to face an evil mother, Adora, in the Sharp Object movie, Lilis must now prepare to face an evil wizard who likes to eat children.
It is also interesting to see what Perkins will do with this film while building its name in the horror genre. In 2013, the film Hensel and Grethel: Witch Hunters had a little comedy tone, but unfortunately, it didn’t help the film too much.
