Exclusive: Actress Bianca Saad Talks Hansel & Gretel Get Baked

16 January 2013 4:20 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This writer hit Gower Studios in Hollywood, CA, on January 30th last year to pay a visit to the set of director Duane Journey’s Hansel & Gretel Get Baked and while there chatted with one of the feature’s players, actress Bianca Saad. Read on for her take on the project and a new still.

Written by first-time feature screenwriter David Tillman and starring Twilight actor Michael Welch as “Hansel,” Molly C. Quinn as “Gretel” (see our previous interview with Molly here) and Lara Flynn Boyle (Men in Black II, “Twin Peaks”) as “Agnes” the witch, the film (formerly known as Black Forest: Hansel and Gretel & The 420 Witch) revolves around the latter character, a centuries old crone who lives in Pasadena, California, and lures teens into her house with a special blend of marijuana in order to eat the adolescents in an effort to maintain her own youth and beauty. »

Timur Bekmambetov to Shoot 'Air Pirates' for Michael Bay

16 January 2013 9:23 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back in 2010 Paramount reportedly paid out a six-figure deal for Heatseekers, a spec script by George Mahaffey that sounds kind of like Point Break, but in the sky: “the story follows a young ex-military pilot who infiltrates a gang of aerial pirates working out of Bangkok and takes part in an elaborate tower heist using powered gliders and parachutes.” There hasn't been a whole lot of forward movement on it since then, though that's understandable because Paramount has surely been busy trying to get the movies it has already made into good enough shape for release (here's looking at you, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and World War Z). But now the studio's reenergized the project by attaching Russian director...

'Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters': The Secrets Behind The Makeup

16 January 2013 9:00 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

By Hannah Soo Park

Perfecting a shrilling cackle apparently isn't the only challenge that comes with tackling the role of a wicked witch.

MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" star Famke Janssen, who said that half the battle of playing Muriel, the movie's chief villain, was looking the part—and dealing with the makeup that came with it.

"I mean unless you've actually had prosthetic makeup on your face, it's this hypothetical idea of what that would be like, and it doesn't seem so daunting as the reality of it is," she said.

While taking on a whole other look is presumably freeing for an actor, Janssen seems to have experienced quite the opposite. "Really, it took a week or so to get into the whole mode of it and to get used to the whole circus of people that you have around you. »

New Images from Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

16 January 2013 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Led by Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) and Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace), Paramount will be putting Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters into Us theatres next Friday, giving an epic action fantasy/horror take on the classic fairy tale.

We saw a great new red-band trailer for the film at the start of the year, giving us a good look at the film, and why it deserves its R rating in the Us. And with just over a week to go before its release in the States, Yahoo Movies have debuted a handful of new images from the blockbuster.

“After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell-bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches… their past.”

Renner and Arterton look excellent in the leads, »

16 January 2013 7:47 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Jennifer Lawrence said she's looking forward to working with her former X-Men: First Class co-stars in the next instalment of the franchise.

The actress played the younger Mystique in the 2011 superhero film and is reprising her role for X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

"It's going to be great to see everybody again. It's really exciting," she said at the BAFTA 2013 Tea Party in Los Angeles.

But the 22-year-old insisted she couldn't give away any plot spoilers ahead of filming.

"I have no idea, they won't tell me," she said.

Jennifer - who is up for a BAFTA for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook - is also working on the second Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire.

"We're kind of on a little break, we'll go back and finish principal photography in March sometime, I think," she said.

X-Men: Days of Future Past begins filming in April. Confirmed to return alongside Jennifer are James McAvoy, »

New Batch of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters Images Slay Online

12 January 2013 6:05 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I’m not sure if you can really classify “Dead Snow” director Tommy Wirkola’s Hollywood debut, “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” as a horror movie. Though I suppose it kinda is. I mean, there are witches and demons and such. Those are technically associated with horror movies, kinda the same way the “Twilight” movies are horror because of the vampires, though there’s nothing overly horrific about either franchises. Unless, of course, you find teen movie franchises terrifying. Anyways, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, check out a handful of new images from Wirkola’s “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”. It’s surprisingly not full of witches, go figure. 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, »

Famke Jansen Welcomes You To 'Hemlock Grove'

10 January 2013 3:54 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Like most, I first fell for Famke Jansen as the bone and ball busting Xenia Onatopp in 1995's GoldenEye. Since then, it's been endlessly exciting watching the leggy brunette cut a swath through Hollywood in a wide variety of films. But her genre work (from The Faculty to the X-Men series) has been the most exhilarating, which is why I'm doubly excited for her turn in the Netflix original, Hemlock Grove.

Eli Roth's gothic thriller (developed by Brian McGreevy & Lee Shipman) revolves around the eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town and the murder of 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell.

Jansen can also be seen in this month's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters as one of the tracked titular monsters; a film that provided her with the biggest test of her professional career. ETonline sat down with Jansen at The Television Critics Association Tour in Pasadena, CA earlier this week to talk about both roles, and whether »
