A sequel to Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, is underway.

The film has grossed over $200 million worldwide, despite some not-too-flattering reviews (including our own), and Deadline is reporting that Paramount and MGM have approved a follow-up.

There is no word yet as to whether Renner, Arterton, and writer/director Tommy Wirkola will return.

You can buy Wirkola’s Norwegian zombie Nazi horrror Dead Snow on Blu-ray for £5.89 at Amazon.co.uk.
