Norwegian Actress Cast As “Hardcore Killing Machine” In Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters

Josh Hylton writes for Bleeding Cool:

Keeping up with movie news is a constant uphill battle, especially if you run a movie news website like this one. Every day, you’re scouring the Internet and trying to find something newsworthy to write about. If it’s a scoop, even better. Sometimes sources providing that scoop can be questionable, but the decision to run with their info might be made anyway.

I say this because word coming from Bloody Disgusting is that Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolsø Berdal has just been cast as one of the witches in Paramount’s upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Their source: a reader, the enigmatic “Kevin M.” Where M he got this information is beyond me. He says she will be wearing heavy make-up and describes her as a “hardcore killing machine.”

On one hand, this doesn’t seem like news that would be worth the trouble of invention just to stir up a rumor, but I will remain a little skeptical. If true, Berdal will join Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen.

The film opens in March of next year.
