Coming off his foreign Nazi zombie movie Dead Snow, director Tommy Wirkola has jumped right into the mainstream with Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Starring Jeremy Renner, The first trailer will be released next Thursday and likely attached to his Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol this month, but today we have the very first still from Entertainment Weekly. Paired with Gemma Arterton, one can see above that the duo are ready for action.
The outlet interviewed Arterton, who discussed the “very, very dark” film that is “bloodthirsty” with Quentin Tarantino feel and “a lot of cursing.” We’ll see if that comparison holds true with the trailer, but for now check out the image above for the film also starring Famke Janssen, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal and Peter Stormare.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters arrives on March 3rd, 2012 in 3D. Ghotocol hits on December 16th, while Renner can also be seen in The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy next year. Quite an action quadrilogy.
