Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton's Hansel and Gretel gets a release date

Paramount has given the fairy tale adaptation HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS a release date. Does this deserve a drumroll? I don’t think so either, the film will be released on March 2, 2012. This is at least three months ahead of the first fairy tale film THE BROTHERS GRIMM: SNOW WHITE so it actually has a chance of doing well before everyone and their brother is sick of fairy tales. The film will also be presented in 3D so that will be a nice addition (sarcasm font would be awesome here). The film is getting a budget of $60 million so look for a big marketing push around the end of this year.
HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS follows the two characters 15 years after their face-off with the gingerbread house witch. They have become bounty hunters and are looking to take down the head witch which will be played by Famke Janssen.
