Hansel & Gretel 2 will not see Tommy Wirkola return to the directors chair.

With Paramount expected to release Hansel & Gretel 2 sometime in 2016, it gives the studio a little time to look for a replacement to Wirkola, after he recently announced he would not be returning to direct stating,

“I’ve just decided to not direct HANSEL & GRETEL 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it’s just a matter of time and priorities. I did DEAD SNOW 1, then HANSEL & GRETEL 1, and then DEAD SNOW 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won’t be directing it.”


The original movie which was written and directed by Wirkola in 2013,  starred Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner as the grown-up siblings who have since become witch hunters.

Renner is set to reprise his role as Hawkeye in Avengers: Age of Ultron on 1st May 2015, whilst Arterton is currently treading the boards in the Westend Musical ‘Made in Dagenham’.
