Paramount and MGM are moving back the release of Jeremy Renner-Gemma Arterton starrer Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters by almost a year, from March 2, 2012, to January 11, 2013.

The move comes on the heels of the successful opening of Paramount’s micro-budgeted horror pic The Devil Inside and Christmas tentpole Mission: Impossible–Ghost Protocol, which has already earned $458.1 million worldwide. The two films almost guarantee that the studio will have a good fiscal quarter (and Devil Inside–scoring the best opening ever for early January–proves the corridor can be lucrative).

There are two other reasons for the move, according to an insider. The 3D materials for Hansel and Gretel are only now coming in, and Paramount wants time to market the 3D aspect, particularly overseas.

Third, Renner — who stars opposite Tom Cruise in Ghost Protocol — has two other 2012 films, The Avengers, which comes out in early May, and The Bourne Legacy, which hits theaters in early August. The insider said pushing back Hansel and Gretel also allows the movie to benefit from the exposure Renner earns from those two films.

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Prods. is producing Hansel and Gretel, which picks up the Brothers Grimm fairy tale 15 years after Hansel and Gretel found the gingerbread house. They’re now bounty hunters. Tommy Wirkola is directing.

Horror/fantasy twists on fairy-tale/literary classics are the big trend for 2012, but now it seems one of them won’t be hitting the screen as soon as originally announced.

Fangoria just got the scoop that Paramount has shifted HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS out of its March 2 berth and will instead release the movie next fall on a date to be determined. The Hollywood debut of DEAD SNOW director Tommy Wirkola, the film stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the grown-up brother and sister who’ve never quite gotten over that childhood gingerbread-house incident, and set out to exterminate witches. Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Zoe Bell and Derek Mears co-star.

What kind of adult does a kid become after surviving a trip to a cannibalistic witch’s gingerbread house?

That’s the premise of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters* (out March 2), which uses the centuries-old German folktale as a preamble to a larger story of vengeance and the bonds between siblings — particularly abused ones.

Next Thursday, look for a trailer from the Paramount film. But for now, we see a first look at Jeremy Renner’s Hansel and Gemma Arterton’s Gretel, all grown up. (Click the picture for a larger view.)

Though older, they’re still prowling the woods for little old ladies who like to devour wayward children. Arterton discussed the approach of the movie, directed by Tommy Wirkola (the Nazi zombie saga Dead Snow), and how it’s as much Pulp Fiction as fairytale…

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How does this movie incorporate the original Brothers Grimm tale? Is that story kind of a prologue?
GEMMA ARTERTON: Yes, it continues it. You see a series of flashbacks with their experience of killing that first witch, which is brilliant. I remember being on set for the final few days of that. The candy house, and the witches are really repulsive and quite frightening. The makeup is out of this world. It’s this bone-chilling scene. Very dark. The girl who plays my character is brilliant, with the horrified expression she has. Read More

Gemma Arterton talks to the Metro about wanting to spread her acting wings and take on less commercial roles as she aims to rid herself of being known as ‘that girl from Bond’, and why working in a pub was her best first job.

What did you get up to in Brazil?

It’s an initiative between Sky and the WWF to raise awareness of deforestation and to save a billion trees in three years. I went to the state of Acre. There’s a road being built and usually loggers get in and it leads to deforestation. It’s easy to deforest, it’s quick money, so this is about giving people other means to make a living by using the rainforest. They love the forest they live in and don’t want to chop it down but they’re so poor they often don’t have a choice. They’ve been changing the way they live as part of the campaign.
