Berdal Joins “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”

Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolso Berdal has joined the cast of “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” for Gary Sanchez Productions and Paramount Pictures says Bloody Disgusting.

The story picks up the fairy-tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which has provoked them to become witch bounty hunters. Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton play the pair.

Berdal will portray one of the witches, and is described as a “superbad killing machine”. Famke Jansenn also stars in the 3D feature.

Tommy Wirkola (“Dead Snow”) directs from a script he co-wrote with D.W. Harper. Shooting kicks off in a few weeks in Berlin.
