Synopsis: 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.
Release Date: January 11, 2013
Thoughts: Having been delayed in nearly every step of its journey from script to production to release date does not bode well for this update of the classic Hansel and Gretel story. Picking up 15 years after they tossed a monstrous witch into an oven, H&G are now bad-ass hunters of all things of a witchy nature. I do enjoy revisiting stories after the happily ever after has worn off and the movie looks to have a good production design and comically scary witches. Bonus points that Famke Janssen is the head witch…but those same points get taken away when you hear that Janssen only took the role to pay for a house. Being released in the burial ground that is January is another fairly good sign this is a dud so I guess the only thing we can do is wait and see if this gingerbread house comes tumbling down.
