Paramount Testing R-Rated and PG-13 Versions of Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters got a big knock back on the release schedule when Paramount moved the 3D fantasy-action film from March 2, 2012 to January 11, 2013. The movie stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the eponymous characters who are all growed up and looking for a little payback against the witch community. In an interview last December, Arterton said the flick was “as much Pulp Fiction as fairy tale.” The studio has been test-screening the picture, and it seems like they’re not sure what they have on their hands. According to recent reports from IMDb users, the studio is showing two versions of the film: one is R-Rated and the other is PG-13, and the R-rated cut is getting the positive feedback.

I was beginning to think that this movie was just not going to ever come out. I hadn't heard anything about it in a very long time. Glad to hear that it's back on for the first of the year and that there may be an R rated version.

Over a year delayed.. what with these movies getting these yearly delays?

Jack the Giant Killer
G.I. Joe 2
The Great Gatsby

Make you wonder if these movies are just junk and the studios are just waiting to dump them into theaters with little to no fanfare.

I don't think this will turn out all that amazing.

pg-13 version might be the one that is best for this film.
