January 10, 2012 07:33:20 GMT


Moviegoers won't be seeing "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" in theaters this year. Paramount Pictures has confirmed that the release date for the Jeremy Renner-starring movie will be pushed back nearly a year from its original 2012 release. The fairy tale-adapted movie has been rescheduled to arrive in the U.S. theaters on January 11, 2013 after originally being slated to open on March 2 this year.

An insider told The Hollywood Reporter that the schedule shifting has to be done because Paramount wants time to distribute a 3D version of "Hansel and Gretel", particularly overseas. It is also said that delaying the release of this Tommy Wirkola-directed film will allow it to benefit from the exposure that Renner will earn from "The Avengers" and "The Bourne Legacy", which both will be released this year.
