Hansel and Gretel “Witch Hunters”
From left to right: Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen and Jeremy Renner.
Variety reports that MGM will co-finance Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters — the “studio’s first such deal since completing its reorganization and receiving a $500 million cash infusion late last year. Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton star in ‘Hansel and Gretel,’ which will be directed by Tommy Wirkola and shot in 3D with a March 2, 2012 release date.
The fairy tale remake is set 15 years after the siblings killed the witch.”
The MGM 3D remake is based on a well-known fairy tale of German origin, recorded by the Brothers Grimm and published in 1812.
Really looking forward to this one Jeremy Renner is one of my favorite actors.
