Directed by Tommy Wirkola and specifically filmed in 3D, “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” is set to blow your mind away come January 2013. The American action-adventure horror film is a continuation to Brothers Grimm’s fairy tale, “Hansel and Gretel” with a modern twist.
Set in a time 15 years after a traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, siblings Hansel (played by Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (playd by Gemma Arterton) have grown into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. They have become the ultimate vigilantes.
Ones that have had taste for blood as children. Ones that are hell bent on retribution.
In current time, Hansel and Gretel are expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taing down their prey. But unbeknownst to them, the siblings have become the hunted. Whilst harmful spells and curses don’t work well against them, they find themselves having to face an evil far greater than spells, curses, and witches – their past:
