Paramount Pictures knows what I want for my birthday as they’ve locked in a March 2, 2012 release for Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which will now be filmed in 3-D.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, and Famke Janssen, the original take on the classic fairytale is set 15 years after the siblings killed the witch who kidnapped them. Hansel and Gretel have now evolved into bounty hunters who pursue witches.
In other release news, Dimension Films might have actually sat down and watched Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein’s Shelter as the film was pulled from its planned February 25 release. No new date was given.
Already in stores overseas, the Julianne Moore-starrer follows a female forensic psychiatrist who specializes in debunking multiple personality disorder. When she discovers that her latest patient’s various personalities are all murder victims, she struggles to find a logical explanation for the man’s delusion.
