Ready for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2?

The fairy tale-themed Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters did solid but unspectacular business at the box office in the US -- about $55 million on a $50 million budget -- but overseas it has raked in more than $150 million, so you know what that means? It's sequel time! Producers are gearing up for the continuing adventures of the witch-hunting brother and sister, although it's unclear whether the main talent will return. Director Tommy Wirkola's focus right now seems to be on making a sequel to his cult hit Dead Snow, while stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton are busy in their own right, so it remains to be seen if they can fit Hansel & Gretel 2 into their schedules. It could be that they had sequel clauses in their contracts, so they may very well be obliged to return, but if not, it may not matter, since you have to wonder if all the people who watched the first film did so for the stars or for the witch decapitations.
