Michael Bay is swapping fast-paced blockbusters for fairytales - his production company is taking on a 3D version of classic children's tale HANSEL & GRETEL.
The Transformers moviemaker, famed for his action epics, will produce the big screen adaptation of the Brothers Grimm story through his The Institute production company.
The computer-generated characters in the 3D adventure will be designed by Joseph C. Pepe - the man behind the aliens in Avatar, according to movie website ComingSoon.net.
The movie is scheduled to begin production in Germany next year (11).
