The action-adventure horror film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, which is based on the popular fairy tale, has been delayed for almost a year. Paramount have pushed the film out of its Autumn “to be determined” release slot and all the way back to 2013.
Oh… sad face. Seriously, I was looking forward to this flick, A) I got a man crush on Jeremy Renner, and B) classic fairy tales re-imagined in some ridiculous modern way always put a dumb smile on my face.
H&G: Witch Hunters is a re-imagining of the dark classic story. It explores what happened to Hansel and Gretel 15 years after the gingerbread house incident. They have become bounty hunters that specialize in tracking down and killing witches!
Sounds bad-ass, right? Now we got to sit on my hands and wait…a fucking year! Phooey!
On a side note. Anybody watching ABC’s Once Upon a Time? Anyone else clap their hands like a SPED when Emma became sheriff? Just me then? OK….
