Set to hit UK cinema screens in early 2013, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters tells the tale of what happened 15 years after the protagonists of the famous Brothers Grimm fairytale shoved the witch into the oven (you know the rest of the story, right?).

Presumably killing off the witch and walking off with her wealth was not enough for the brother and sister, at least it seems that way in this Hollywood extension of the story that sees Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) taking on Famke Janssen‘s evil sorceress.

As huge fans of the Hansel and Gretel (it scared the living daylights out of us as children), and having been impressed by Jeremy Renner‘s turn in the Bourne Legacy, we’re quite looking forward to the arrival of this filmic continuation of the fairytale.

Before you watch the trailer: on a random but witch-related note – if  it does well, do you think Hollywood would consider making a movie version of Granny’s Garden? Now that would be amazing!
