MGM Reboots With Hansel and Gretel

By

MGM filed for bankruptcy two years ago, and is just now climbing out of its deep debt hole. On Thursday, the studio announced a co-financing deal with Paramount on a new flick, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner. Also in the works, remakes of eighties films Mr. Mom, The Idolmaker, RoboCop, and Poltergeist. And yes, there are no new ideas. [Variety]
