Renner & Rapace to Lead 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters'?

Jeremy Renner & Noomi Rapace

Two of the most buzzed about acting talents in the industry right now may be coming together for quite an interesting project. Though this certainly isn't anywhere near official, a Norwegian press outlet (via Twitch) sat down for an interview with actor Jeremy Renner at the Venice Film Festival where he revealed that he and Noomi Rapace (of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) are up for leading Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Though details are sparse (and we don't speak Norwegian) it appears that the two are only in the running to follow the breadcrumbs in director Tommy Wirkola's very unique take on the classic fairy tale.

If you don't recall, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are co-producing this wacky project with a story that takes place some 15 years after that whole gingerbread house incident. Their excitement for the project came from the prospect of bringing a Shaun of the Dead/Evil Dead 2 sort of action/horror comedy to their production company. Knowing those details, casting Renner and Rapace don't seem like the most obvious choices with comedy in the mix, but maybe this has a much more serious tone than we've been led to believe. Once again, Renner may have let this information slip out of his own mouth a bit too early, but if there's no deal in place, then we won't count our actors before they're cast. Is there anyone else you'd like to see in this flick?

at the moment,so little is known about story and atmosphere of the movie - it's hard to venture a guess as to who would be good casting choices.

If anything it's nice to see Rapace get work in the States.
