First Look at Leather-Clad Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters


Hansel and Gretel are all grown up and huntin’ witches, and they’re played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as, apparently, leather-clad badasses looking for some trouble. Or at least, that’s what I got from this official first look at “Dead Snow” director Tommy Wirkola’s first Hollywood foray, “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”. Check it out, won’t you?

15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.

The film, due out March 2nd, 2012 of next year, also stars Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Zoe Bell, Derek Mears, and Thomas Mann.

      I smell “Van Helsing 2: Van Harder”

      • Lexavi80

        Haha! My thoughts exactly!

        Same, thought of that dismal Van Helsing immediately. This may be harsh, but I don’t really care how Hansel and Gretel turned out as adults.

    I wonder how bad there accents will be. Hugh jackman set a high bar of bad accents in van hell sing!

    Not to mention a 2 Mar release smells of no faith in the studio…this one is going to stink up the place!

  • Brent McKnight

    I always wondered what those crazy kids were up to after the gingerbread house.

  • Kiro

    I smell stupid comments…

    If taken seriously and not campy (Like van Helsing) it could be good, and fun. But I will wait and see. Don’t care either way though. I’m thinking “Brothers grimm” meets “Van Helsing”

    I honestly think the only way to do this well is to have a silly aspect to it. The premise itself is silly. If it were something more Hardcore sounding I would have more criticism of the picture, but as it stands, It’s Hansel and Gretel. All is fair game. I like Jeremy Renner, and if he saw something in being a part of the film, I will go with that for now.
