The second horror trailer of 2020 has dropped, the Grimm-inspired fairytale Gretel & Hansel is getting a new film adaptation starring Sophia Lillis and Sammy Leakey.
The story seems to follow the classic dark fable about a young girl and her brother who get lost in the woods and happen upon the house of a nefarious witch.
From Osgood “Oz” Perkins, the director of The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, the film stars Sophia Lillis (It, HBO’s Sharp Objects), newcomer Sammy Leakey, Alice Krige (Star Trek: First Contact, Netflix’s The OA), Jessica De Gouw (WGN’s Underground, The CW’s Arrow) and Charles Babalola (Netflix’s Black Mirror, The Legend of Tarzan).
Gretel & Hansel is written by Rob Hayes (Netflix’s Chewing Gum), produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Sinister, Upgrade) and Fred Berger (La La Land, Destroyer) on behalf of Automatik and executive produced by Sandra Yee Ling and Macdara Kelleher.
Gretel & Hansel will be released in theaters January 31, 2020
