Gemma Arterton Finds Her Way to Paramount’s ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’


British actress Gemma Arterton is set to star opposite Jeremy Renner in director Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, a flash forward of the classic fairy tale that finds the duo hunting down supernatural forces for profit.

Arterton, who starred in last year’s tent-pole releases Prince of Persia and Clash of the Titans, reportedly beat out Eva Green (“Camelot”), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) for the role.

Shooting for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters will begin on March 7 in Berlin. Paramount Pictures is aiming for a June 2012 release.
