Meet Tommy Wirkola. He's the man responsible for Norwegian Kill Bill parody Kill Buljo. He brought Nazi zombies to bloody life in Dead Snow. He made comedy juvenile again in Kurt Josef Wagle And The Legend Of The Fjord Witch. And next? Next he's making his English language debut with Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters. That bit's been known for a while. What hasn't been known is who his Hansel and Gretel will be. But know we know.

The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner - not a man good at keeping secrets, this one - dropped word in an interview at the Venice International Film Festival that he's up for the part of Hansel with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo's Noomi Rapace as Gretel. Renner and Rapace as the fairytale characters fifteen years later, now evolved into witch hunting warriors? Oh, hell yes.

    That premise sounds fantastic, good to have Noomi onboard too. I felt Dead Snow had some short comings, but there was plenty of potential for sure.
