Hansel and GretelBy Jay A. Fernandez and Borys Kit – HollywoodReporter.com

Writer Dante Harper has been hired to sprinkle a few more bread crumbs on the script for “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.”

“Dead Snow” co-writer/director Tommy Wirkola is helming the project for Gary Sanchez Prods. and Paramount. The Norwegian pitched and plotted out the story line, which picks up the fairy-tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which provoked them to become witch bounty hunters.

Sanchez execs Kevin Messick, Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy are producing the horror-action comedy, which is pitched as having a gory-but-funny “Shaun of the Dead” vibe.

Harper also worked on the screenplay for “Black Hole,” which director David Fincher has been developing at Paramount.

McKay, Henchy, Messick and Ferrell are shooting the Gary Sanchez comedy “The Other Guys,” which Sony has scheduled for an August release.
