Dead Snow 2 Red vs. Dead (2014) Review

6 hours ago | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Tommy Wirkola rocks. I know a lot of moviegoers were ready to write him off after releasing Hansel Gretel Witch Hunters but theres no need for that. In fact Hansel Gretel was a surprisingly entertaining film that delivered some good laughs and intense action scenes. Its not a perfect feature but it is damn good fun and Ill be showing up for the premiere of the sequel. As for the Dead Snow movies... well theyre just a special ilk. »

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Director Won’t Return For Sequel

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It appears as though Jeremy Renner’s schedule has indeed derailed production of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. Last we reported of the sequel brought news that the film’s director, Tommy Wirkola, had summited a script to Paramount Pictures and was awaiting the go-ahead from the studio to begin filming.

Now though, Wirkola has admitted to Fangoria that he has departed the project as director.

“I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it’s just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won’t be directing it.”

While this is disappointing news for fans of the off-beat original, »

The Future Of Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 Just Took A Huge Blow

20 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It turns out Jeremy Renner's uber-busy schedule may not be the biggest obstacle Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 has to face. The sequel to the R-rated fairy tale just lost its director. Fangoria breaks our hearts by reporting Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters helmer Tommy Wirkola has walked away from the sequel. He explains: "I.ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it.s just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won.t be directing it." Excuse me. I need a moment to let my hopes for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 shatter completely. On the surface, this might »

Director Tommy Wirkola won't be back for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2

30 September 2014 12:41 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Tommy Wirkola may have completed the screenplay for a follow-up to his Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters, but he won't be directing the planned sequel. The Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead director recently told Fangoria he won't be back for Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, and it appears sequel fatigue got to the filmmaker. I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it’s just a matter of time »

Tommy Wirkola Leaves ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2′

29 September 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was only last week that writer and director Tommy Wirkola announced that the script for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 was completed. But now it appears that Wirkola is leaving the project for somebody else to direct. Speaking to Fangoria magazine, Wirkola said:

I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things. It’s just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel (Witch Hunters) 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won’t be directing it.

This is completely understandable from a creative point of view. Dead Snow 2 rocked this year’s FrightFest, and was absolutely astonishingly awesome, so it’s a shame Wirkola »

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director not returning for sequel

29 September 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola has announced that he will not be returning to helm the film’s upcoming sequel, which is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2016.

The Norwegian director broke the news himself in a recent interview with Fangoria:

“I’ve decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it’s just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won’t be directing it.”

You can’t really blame Wirkola for wanting to do something different for his next project, and I bet that he was just as surprised as we were when Hansel & Gretel 2 got the green light from Paramount. »

"Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" director Tommy Wirkola has surprisingly revealed that he will not direct the upcoming sequel to that film.

Wirkola wrote and directed the first film and has already completed the sequel's script. However, he tells Fangoria he's passed on taking the helm:

"I've just decided to not direct 'Hansel and Gretel 2'. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it's just a matter of time and priorities. I did 'Dead Snow', then 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters', and then 'Dead Snow 2'. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won't be directing it."

The 2013 horror-action clocked up $55 million domestically, and $170 million internationally. »

'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Sequel Loses Director Tommy Wirkola

29 September 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The sequel to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters needs to hunt for a new director.  Tommy Wirkola, who directed Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in the 2013 fantasy-adventure film and was expected to helm the follow-up, has left the project, according to Fangorla. Wirkola's next film is Dead Snow 2, which hits theaters Oct. 10.  "I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2," Wirkola said. "I have been lately attached to a few more things.

'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2' Loses Director Tommy Wirkola

29 September 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola states in a new interview with Fangoria that he is no longer directing Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, just one week after having revealed that the script is finished.

Here's what the filmmaker had to say, stating that he still hopes to be involved in the project, just not as a director.

"I've just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it's just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won't be directing it."

Last week, the filmmaker turned his script in to Paramount Pictures, which was received positively by the studio. »

Tommy Wirkola Not Returning to Direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2

29 September 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even though he has completed the script to the film, Tommy Wirkola (who also helmed the Dead Snow films) has said that he's decided against returning to direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2.  I'm not sure if this really qualifies as a blow against the film since Wirkola is still attached to produce the thing and oversee his script, and if Paramount is able to find some young hotshot director to make this their playground then it could actually be a cool scenario. I identify with Wirkola's reasoning here, as it seems he doesn't want to be caught in an endless cycle of making sequels to his own films.  The biggest hurdle facing the project remains the potential unavailability of star Jeremy Renner.  Hit the jump for more on Tommy Wirkola not returning to direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. Wirkola told Fangoria: “I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel »

Tommy Wirkola Won't Direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Sequel

29 September 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Oh, let me taste your tears! Mm, your tears are so yummy and sweet! Americans ($55M) won't care about this news, but based on the international ($170M) success of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters there will be plenty of foreigners crying in their blood pudding. Fangoria recently chatted with Tommy Wirkola, who wrote and directed the 2013 horror-action film, and he revealed that he won't direct the sequel. A bit of surprise as he has already completed the film's script. “I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2,” Wirkola told Fangoria. “I have been lately attached to a few more things, it’s just a matter of time and priorities.” he continues. “I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2.

Man wakes up with Nazi-zombie arm in Nsfw 'Dead Snow 2' clip

29 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ever had one of those days when you wake up in a hospital following a car accident to discover the cops believe you killed several of your friends and that a surgeon has mistakenly grafted a Nazi-zombie arm onto your right elbow? Who hasn’t, right? Regardless, that is the situation facing Martin (Vegar Hoel) in the new horror film Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead. Like 2009’s original, undead-Nazi tale Dead Snow, this sequel is directed by Tommy Wirkola (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and finds Hoel’s Martin once again facing down Ørjan Gamst’s dreaded—and deaded—Colonel Herzog. »

23 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA have teamed to acquire North American rights to”Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife,”  the directorial debut of Scott Foley.

Actor Foley (“Scandal”), who wrote and directed the black comedy, lined up a cast of familiar faces for the project including Patrick Wilson, Amy Acker, Donald Faison, Greg Grunberg and Nicollette Sheridan, among others. The plots centers on a group of friends whose efforts to help one of them out of a bad relationship turns unexpectedly murderous.

Foley co-produced the film with Wilson and James Carpinello’s Lost Rhino Films, and with Joe Hardesty. The distribution deal was pacted by Tribeca’s Alison Diviney with ICM’s Alex Saks and Apa’s Will Lowery.

“Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife” hits VOD platforms in December, with a theatrical run to follow in January.

Script For Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 Is Complete, But Will Jeremy Renner Return?

22 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What falters on home soil may do surprisingly well overseas: that appears to be Hollywood’s new safety net of sorts, with notable releases such as Rush, Pacific Rim and, crucially, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters all gaining more than 70% of their box office take from international markets.

In fact, the latter’s overseas performance — which saw its total earnings triple to $225.7 million — warranted the commission of a direct sequel. And so, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 was born.

Only, it appears as though pre-development has stalled on writer-director Tommy Wirkola’s project, who recently spoke with Shock Till You Drop about the status of the sequel.

“I’ve written the script for it. 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 »
