Variety report that Gemma Arterton has signed on to star opposite Jeremy Renner in Paramount’s upcoming fairy tale adaptation ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.’ The film is said to be a dark action movie that picks up with the fairy tale siblings years after the traumatic childhood incident has turned them into bounty hunters.

Arterton beat out the likes of Diane Kruger, Eva Green and Noomi Rapace for the part. Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola will direct the film. Filming is set to start in Berlin as early as March.
