Gretel & Hansel is a spooky take on the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale, revolving around a brother and sister who venture into the woods to find evil awaiting them.
The horror spin on the tale will be a departure from the
previous adaptation of the fairy tale which starred Jeremy Renner and Gemma
Arterton as a pair of warriors in Hansel
& Gretel: Witch Hunters.
A long time ago in a distant fairy-tale countryside, a young girl (Sophia Lillis, It) leads her little brother (Sammy Leakey) into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.
From Osgood Perkins, the director of The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, the film also stars Alice Krige (The OA, Star Trek: First Contact), Jessica De Gouw (Underground, Arrow) and Charles Babalola (Black Mirror, The Legend of Tarzan).
Gretel & Hansel arrives in cinemas in January 2020.
