Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Delayed Nearly a Year

Paramount Pictures has rescheduled their Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters from March 2nd of this year to January 11, 2013.

The film arrives from Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola and stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen. Set 15 years after the Grimm’s Fairy Tale siblings incident at the gingerbread house, the film finds Hansel and Gretel working as bounty hunters, tracking down supernatural beings.

While the Wirkola film is planned for a 3D release, it should not be confused with the also-in-development film Hansel and Gretel in 3D, set to be produced by Michael Bay.
