It was announced today that Paramount Pictures has officially locked in their leading duo for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters! Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) has been cast as Gretel, while Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) is now officially locked for “Hansel”. Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow) is directing the pic that explores how things played out for the poor siblings 15 years after that whole gingerbread house incident. Simply put, they’re now specialized bounty hunters looking to put down the cackling black-hat set. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s Noomi Rapace was at one point in talks for Gretel.
