Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters will now be shot in 3D, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film has a release date of March 2, 2012 and will enlist the help of MGM as a co-financer now that it has moved into the realm of 3D.
The film will be set 15 years after the fateful incident at the gingerbread house as chronicled in the Grimm fairytale. The film finds the older brother-sister duo as trainer witch hunters getting their revenge for what happened to them when they were little.
Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner are set to star in the movie as Hansel and Gretel. Femke Jansen has also recently signed on to the film.
Fairy tales are quite coveted films these days.
The Snow White story already has three different versions in production and the Hansel and Gretel story also has another version - Hansel and Gretel in 3D from producer Michael Bay.
Don't confuse the two - completely different movies!
