It's coming on five years since "The Hurt Locker," and whether or not Jeremy Renner has truly ascended the way some might have predicted is debatable. Yes, he was great in "The Town" but since then he's logged a throwaway role in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," played a brainwashed zombie for half of "The Avengers," and while it was successful, there doesn't seem to be much clamoring for Aaron Cross to return after "The Bourne Legacy." So what's next for Renner? Uh, this...

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, Renner,

It's coming on five years since "The Hurt Locker," and whether or not Jeremy Renner has truly ascended the way some might have predicted is debatable. Yes, he was great in "The Town" but since then he's logged a throwaway role in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," played a brainwashed zombie for half of "The Avengers," and while it was successful, there doesn't seem to be much clamoring for Aaron Cross to return after "The Bourne Legacy." So what's next for Renner? Uh, this...

Two clips have landed for "Hansel And Gretel Witch Hunters," which seems to be in every way, shape and form a "January Release." A rebooted/reimagined take on the fairy tale, he co-stars with Gemma Arterton as witch huntin' siblings, tracking down evil in the woods or whatever. These two glimpses at the movie aren't exactly thrilling, and the movie certainly won't be a career booster for either actor. But here's hoping David O. Russell can find new muscles for Renner to work with in the upcoming movie he'll be doing with Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper.

"Hansel And Gretel Witch Hunters" arrives on January 26th. [SFX]
