'Hansel and Gretel' from Michael Bay's Institute to be 3-D

The Institute, a media company founded by Michael Bay and Scott Gardenhour that integrates brand marketing into its storytelling, will produce Hansel and Gretel in 3D with Kalliope Films. The live-action adaptation of the Grimm Brothers’ fairytale is expected to shoot on location in Germany in spring 2011. In addition to the infamous witch in the gingerbread house, the film will feature legendary creatures of German mythology designed by Joseph C. Pepe, the lead character designer from Avatar.

      There was a German G-d character in Hansel & Gretel? Yeah that doesnt sound right.

      Is that really necessary? That brings nothing to the table. Michael Bay is one of the foremost filmmakers in the world. Show some respect. Animals act better than this.

    • Bay For President, Gardenhour for VP

      Bay loves Pepsi and according to some funny commercial he likes Verizon as well.

    It’s about time someone did a Hansel & Gretel movie. Bay and Gardenhour did Pearl Harbor, creature designer from Avatar meet Hansel and Gretel. Yeah Im down. Sounds cool

    Okay so let me get this straight. Follow me on this. The Institute (Victoria Secret commercials), Bay (Transformers), Gardenhour (Pearl Harbor), Pepe (Avatar), Sesay (dont know much about her but she has to be doing something right), and Hansel & Gretel all connected to each other? You got my vote, Mr President.

    I’m pretty sure the whole GOD, german creature thing wasn’t in the real story, i mean they’re prolly gonna edit it a bit and add new things to the story to make it 2 hours worthy…and what the hell is with that person who told Michael Bay to burn in hell because he likes Pepsi and Verizon….
