Rising genre filmmaker Oz Perkins has signed on to direct Gretel and Hansel for Orion Pictures and Automatik Entertainment, Collider has exclusively learned. Rob Hayes (Netflix’s Chewing Gum) wrote the script, which sources describe as a faithful version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about a pair of siblings kidnapped by a terrifying witch who lives in the surrounding woods. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Sinister) and Fred Berger (La La Land) will produce for Automatik, and production is expected to start this fall in Europe.

If Disney's not making it, I'm glad that someone is! Definitely interested in this.

Gretel has been cast.

Quote:
Sophia Lillis, the breakout from the 2017 hit Stephen King adaptation It, will star in Gretel and Hansel, a reimagining of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale from Orion Pictures.

Osgood Perkins, who wrote and directed the haunted-house horror pics The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, is helming the spooky thriller, which he wrote with Rob Hayes.

The story is described as being set a long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside and focuses on a young girl who leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.

Orion is prepping a fall shoot in Ireland. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Sinister, Upgrade) and Fred Berger (La La Land, Autopsy of Jane Doe), partners at Automatik Entertainment, will produce. Sandra Yee Ling will executive produce. Dan Kagan will oversee the project on behalf of Orion.

Oh, I love her! And the plot sounds like this will be very cool!

Lillis is really going places. What a shame she couldn’t have played Ariel.

I'm still holding out hope that we could see her as Ariel, but with the current trend of Disney's live-action films, I'm not sure it would make a difference in the long run.

Am excited for this film since it'll be a traditional take on the story.
