What Convinced Jeremy Renner To Take ‘Hansel & Gretel’ Without Seeing A Script?

Picking a project for Holllywood actors can come down to a single aspect, whether it’s an acclaimed director or the location of the shoot. For Jeremy Renner and “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” all he needed was simple piece of concept art.

As Renner explains in this exclusive from the Blu-ray and DVD release of “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” the one-sheet image of his character and his on-screen sister convinced him that the movie was worth doing before he even saw a script.

“The initial attraction to do the movie came from a little one sheet that I got before I even got the script, and it was something that they ended up shooting in the movie. It was Hansel and Gretel walking away,” Renner says. “There’s a fire going and a witch burning in the background. He has a shotgun, and she has this crossbow. That’s interesting to me. I don’t know why, but it was.”

The unrated version of “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 11. It is available for digital download now.
