Saturday 02 April 2011
Oscar winner Jeremy Renner (
The Town) and Gemma Arterton (
Prince of Persia) have begun shooting
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters in 3D.
The story picks up from the fairy tale fifteen years later when Hansel and Gretel are bounty hunters in search of witches as revenge, after escaping their childhood ordeal in the gingerbread house at the hands of a wicked witch.
Being shot in Germany in 3D and directed by Tommy Wirkola ( Dead Snow), it also features Famke Janssen ( X-Men films) and Peter Stormere ( The Big Lebowski, Fargo).
Renner, who won the Academy Award for The Hurt Locker, will next be seen in Mission Impossible III: Ghost Protocol with Tom Cruise and The Avengers, the comic book tale that brings together Marvel super heroes.
Arterton, who recently starred in Tamara Drewe, will be seen in In With the Outlaws directed by actor Richard E. Grant ( Love Hurts).
Hansel and Gretel is set for release on March 2, 2012 in 3D.
