Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola is returning to the universe he created in the 1999 cult Norwegian horror/comedy, directing Dead Snow: War Of The Dead.

“I am delighted to step back into the world of Nazi zombies yet again with Dead Snow: War Of The Dead,” Wirkola told Screen Daily, “a world that is very close to my heart.

“Ever since we premièred Dead Snow at Sundance 2009, I’ve been getting questions on a sequel, and now, after Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has been released, the time is finally right. We have a script that I am super excited about, which is bigger, scarier, funnier, more action-filled and gorier than the previous one, and I can’t wait to unleash another horde of undead Nazi zombies onto the world again.”

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is in cinemas from 22 February 2013. Buy Dead Snow now  on DVD for £3.75 or Blu-ray for £5.86 from
