First it was Snow White that got a makeover in Snow White and the Huntsman, and now Hansel and Gretel are getting down to business: Hot off The Bourne Legacy, Jeremy Renner teams up with former Bond girl Gemma Arterton (against former Bond villainess Famke Janssen) for the decidedly different shoot-'em-up thriller Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Get a first look at the trailer!
In theaters January 11, 2013, Hansel and Gretel casts Renner and Arterton as the title fairytale characters – only this time, they're all grown up and making up for that "traumatic gingerbread-house incident" that went down when they were just kids.
Armed with an arsenal of medieval weapons and playthings, Hansel and Gretel focus their efforts on taking down a variety of supernatural creatures and a new, evil witch (Janssen) who is kidnapping children. Not on their watch!
