Hansel Has His Gretel

Last year Jeremy Renner let it slip that he was starring in a new version of the classic fairytale Hansel and Gretel titled Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. There were some rumors on who would play Gretel, Noomi Rapace was the rumored favorite but that was not to be.

Today it was announced that Gretel would be played by Gemma Arterton. Gemma Arterton is best known for her roles in the James Bond film Quantum Of Solace and the remake of The Clash Of The Titans.

Arterton and Renner will play older versions of the siblings.  This story takes place years after the original.  Hansel and Gretel are now bounty hunters who hunt witches.

Tommy Wirkola who directed Dead Snow will direct.  Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters will start shooting in March.
