Harper Pens “Hansel” Action/Comedy

Dante Harper is set to pen the horror-action comedy script for “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” for Gary Sanchez Productions and Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story picks up the fairy-tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which provoked them to become witch bounty hunters.

Tommy Wirkola (“Dead Snow”) directs while Kevin Messick, Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy are producing.
