The fantasy action film 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters', starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, was originally set to be released in March of this year. However, the release date was postponed to January of 2013, reportedly to capitalize on Renner's post Avengers and Bourne Legacy fame.
Since the news about the change in release date, we haven't heard a lot of details about the movie, but now reports on the IMDB boards are suggesting that the studio is testing both Rated R and PG-13 version of the film to test audiences. Reactions reportedly differed a lot between the two version, and users are said to have preferred the R version. However, studio sources are now saying that the IMDB users were mistaken, and the studio was always 100% planning to release the movie as Rated R.
This means that the two versions that were being tested could have just been different forms of the Rated R version, and this could mean that users preferred the 'more Rated R' version than the tamer one.
The film is said to revolve around the grown up characters of Hansel and Gretel, played by Renner and Arterton, and their plan for revenge.
