Former X-Man and Bond girl Famke Janssen has reportedly joined the cast of Paramount’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The Playlist broke the news of Jannsen’s casting in the flick, with Deadline claiming she’ll play “the leader of the witches.”

Tommy Wirkola directs the 3D Hansel & Gretel, which stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as adult versions of the eponymous fairy tale characters who, having survived their childhood ordeal, now serve as bounty hunters out to get witches.

Gemma Arterton appears to be starring in almost as many movies as Natalie Portman these days. And with roles in Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia and The Disapperance of Alice Creed, her choices have earned her quite a few admirers from the genre crowd. Now Arterton’s signed on for a project that’s right up FEARnet‘s alley: Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Variety reports that Arterton will play one of the two title roles, alongside the previously announced Jeremy Renner, in this continuation of the classic Grimm’s fairy tale.

“The original take on the fairytale is set 15 years after the siblings killed the witch who kidnapped them. Hansel and Gretel have now evolved into bounty hunters who pursue witches.”

Dead Snow helmer Tommy Wirkola will direct from a script by D.W. Harper. Funnyman Will Ferrell and his partners Chris Henchy, Adam McKay and Kevin J. Messick will produce. The film starts shooting March 7th in Berlin.

After months of speculation and rumors, Gemma Arterton has officially signed on to play Gretel opposite Jeremy Renner’s Hansel in Paramount’s dark fantasy “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”, based on the Grimm fairytale. Previously, the role had been rumored to have been snagged by “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” breakout star Noomi Rapace but as with these things, nothing’s official until deals have been signed. Eva Green and Diane Kruger were also in the running, but ultimately Arterton will be Gretel, according to THR.

Funnily enough, this film is not one of the dozens that Arterton has mentioned being attached to recently, which include the likes of “Capa” with Andrew Garfield, “London Fields”, “The Key to the Street” and more. One movie she is definitely attached to is the sequel to “Clash of the Titans”, “Wrath of the Titans”, in which she will reprise her role as Io. Renner is currently shooting “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” opposite Tom Cruise and will be on deck to play Hawkeye in “The Avengers” so scheduling around the two busy careers will be an issue for the studio.
