Keep an eye out next Thursday for the first trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, but in the meantime, our first look at the Paramount Pictures film starring Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Avengers) and Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans, Prince of Persia) as the titular siblings and they look pretty bad-ass. Directed by Tommy Wirkola, the film sees Hansel and Gretel grown up as full-time killers whose targets are witches like the one who terrorized them at a young age. And with producers like Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, this should be quite a story to behold early next year. See the photo below!
Here's Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters from EW:

Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare and Zoe Bell also star in the film being produced by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell through their Gary Zanchez banner. Paramount will release the film into theaters on March 2nd, 2012.
