Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is an upcoming 2013 American action-adventure horror film directed by Tommy Wirkola and filmed in 3-D. It is a continuation to the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in the titular roles, with Famke Janssen as the leader of a coven of evil witches that they seek out to destroy. The film is set to be released in 3-D and IMAX 3D on January 25, 2013. It will be the first film from MTV Films to be released in IMAX 3D format.
Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton), many years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have grown into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy because for an unknown reason, harmful spells and curses do not work well against them.
The Mayor of Augsburg, Germany recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress Muriel (Famke Janssen) who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches’ gathering during the upcoming ‘Blood Moon’ night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer (Peter Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
