Bad news for all of us who were looking forward to the release of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, featuring Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen as the primary terror hotties. It seems that there’s now a pretty substantial delay on for this one.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters follows the title characters, who after surviving their first encounter with a witch decided that they mean to take care of all witches all around their world. And, better yet, they discover that people will pay to have their witch problems taken care of. But when they encounter a witch that’s significantly more powerful than they expected to find, they’re going to have the fight of their lives on their hands.
And the bad news is that, while this was originally set to hit theaters in March, it’s now been pushed all the way back to 2013. Specifically, January 11, 2013. But the good news is that early word says that, while this one may sound like a remake of The Brothers Grimm, it’s actually a very good title. Current word says that this is a downright doozy, and hopefully it will turn out that well when it actually gets its release very early in 2013.
