Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is an upcoming 3D fantasy comedy action movie directed by Tommy Wirkola.

The cast includes Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, and Peter Stormare. The release date of the movie Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is set for March 2, 2012.
A few words from Director Tommy Wirkola:
"Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) 15 years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into vengenful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminate witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them. Now, Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of the evil Muriel (Famke Janssen) who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches' gathering during the upcoming 'Blood Moon' night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer (Peter Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witchhunt of his own."
Considering all the talents involved, I'm pretty sure that the movie Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters will be a hit! I'm especially impatient to seethe performance of the gorgeous Gemma Arterton as Gretel.
