Hansel and Gretel are growing up.

Actor Jeremy Renner is set to play the male lead in "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters."

Gemma Arterton, who stared in "The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," has been cast to play his sister, Gretel.

The story is set 15 years after they killed the witch who kidnapped them.

As it turns out, the two are now bounty hunters who pursue witches.

Shooting begins in March.
