Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton bring the heat as “Hansel and Gretel”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Snow White isn’t the only fairy tale character getting a serious makeover for 2012.
According to a new photo obtained by EW.com, Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton (two physical actors with more than of experience kicking butt through blockbuster franchises) are about to bring the heat to a grubby witch in the mash-up sensation “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.”
The film, due in theaters on Dec. 2, imagines what H&G would be like as grownups, having suffered through the traumatic ordeal at the hands of an oven-wielding witch.
“It’s kind of got a [Quentin] Tarantino feel, really,” Arterton tells the magazine.
The full picture is below. A trailer reportedly will be released by Paramount next week.
“Witch Hunters” will be in theaters next year. Tommy Wirkola directs. Renner, meanwhile, can be seen in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” later this month, and will appears as part of Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” in May 2012.
