A photo was released by EW for the movie Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. And it has a Van Helsing vibe to it, which should play the campiness quite well. After all, the film is an action horror comedy starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as Hansel and Gretel. Not to mention, Famke Janssen plays the leader of the evil witches.
The plot takes us fifteen years after the events in the original Hansel and Gretel story that we’re all familiar with. The siblings are grownup, hardened hunters. And of course they’ll be a little emotionally damaged — who wouldn’t after a near death experience with a witch who wants to devour you?
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters hits theaters March 2, 2012.
