After Snow White and the Huntsman, are you jonesing for more gritty versions of fairy tales? Well, until Little Bo Peep: Sheep Strangler and The Three Little Pigs: Prank Callers get greenlit, you'll have to make do with Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Check out the new red band trailer for Hansel and Gretel:
The tone is a little unexpected, though perhaps a welcome divergence from what you would expect from this project: awful German accents and intense melodrama. And with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay producing, the film may prove to be sort of funny.
Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) and Gemma Arterton star as the brother/sister team of lore, only now they're all grown up and hunting witches as a profession. Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, and Thomas Mann also star, with Tommy Wirkola directing. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters will premiere January 25, 2013.
