Hollywood just can’t get enough of the fairytale genre. This time, they’re taking Hansel and Gretel and turning them into leather-clad grown-ups that hunt witches. Huffington Post recently uploaded a trailer of the children’s classic reboot in all of its leathery glory.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the two famous siblings who are now all grown up and riddled with revenge after a traumatizing incident involving a witch. The film looks as if it will follow in the footsteps of Snow White and the Huntsman, taking a darker twist on a classic tale.
The trailer features Renner narrating the classic tale of Hansel and Gretel while images of the heavily armed duo hunt down and battle the evil witch (played by Famke Janssen).
Originally, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was supposed to premiere March 2, but Paramount Pictures have moved up the date to Jan. 13, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
