Gemma Arterton Joins Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
We reported back in September that Jeremy Renner and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace were in talks to play Hansel and Gretel in this revamped tale. Rapace was a contender for the role, along with Diane Kruger and Eva Green, which eventually went to Gemma Arterton.
Tommy Wirkola is directing from a script he co-wrote with D.W. Harper. The story picks up years after the original fairy tale, with the brother and sister becoming bounty hunters to cope with their tragic past.
