"Dead Snow; Red vs. Dead"
The Sundance Film Festival is associated with many things: celebrities, swag and of course, compelling dramas and sharp comedies that will have everyone talking for the rest of the year. But let us not forget that Park City also has a midnight lineup where folks can sit back and get scared silly. And one of the movies headed to Utah is a sequel to the film that put the director of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" on the map.

'Hansel & Gretel' Director Tommy Wirkola Returns To Norway To Make That 'Dead Snow' Sequel You Wanted

Tommy Wirkola’s debut Hollywood feature had a less than conventional route to theaters. Originally due in March 2012, Paramount failed to ever really get the marketing campaign for "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" going, which meant no one was all that surprised when in was pushed back to the January dumping ground of 2013. The studio then toyed with the idea of releasing a PG-13 cut, but eventually settled for an R-rating, and the picture beat out “Parker” to a spot at the top of the box office on an admittedly slow weekend. 'Hansel & Gretel' has actually already gone on to gross upwards of $125 million worldwide despite being pretty awful (or “unrelentingly stupid” as we said in our review) and having a few major territories still left to hit, so it’s probably the quality of the thing rather than its performance that has Wirkola retreating back to his native Norway.
