2 min read

Production on the March 2, 2012 release of the 3D movie Hansel & Gretel have surfaced via the folks over at Accidental Sexiness which has about eight pictures total. We’ve snapped two of them here to show off Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in their full witch hunting gear looking like they’re ready for some action. The feature is being directed by Tommy Wirkola who has also taken on the writing duties for this. Famke Janssen also stars in this feature.

According to an interview with Wirkola with Shock Till You Drop, “it’s an action-adventure horror movie that finds Hansel and Gretel fifteen years [after their first witch incident] and they’ve grown up to become merciless witch hunters. Blood and gore and action, all the stuff that I love. (…) It’s definitely an R-rated movie, the first draft has a lot of blood and guts. First and foremost, it’s an action movie, I think, with horror elements. And of course some dark humor as well. But the action and horror are the most import feelings I want.”

Plot summary: Catching up with Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) 15 years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminate witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them. Now, Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of the evil Muriel (Janssen) who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches’ gathering during the upcoming ‘Blood Moon’ night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer (Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own
