Who here hasn’t yet seen Norwegian writer/director Tommy Wirkola’s zombie nazi masterpiece ‘Dead Snow’? Well if not, why not!? Get to it, as Wirkola managed to score the new ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ flick thanks to it! The new 3D project, which stars ‘The Hurt Locker’ and ’28 Weeks Later’s Jeremy Renner along with gorgeous Brit Gemma Arterton – below (‘Tamara Drewe’, ‘Clash of the Titans’) and Famke Janssen (‘Nip/Tuck’, ‘X-Men’) has just received a new release date announcement. The Paramount production, which has just seen MGM step in to co-finance the project, will arrive in theatres stateside on 2 March 2012.
“Catching up with Hansel and Gretel 15 years after their incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into bounty hunters who hunt witches.”
