The Fairytale movie trend is in full swing. Former Bond girl Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner are set to take on roles as twenty-something versions of Hansel and Gretel in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, reportedly out later this year. Meanwhile, Beastly, a modern-day take on Beauty and the Beast (starring Mary-Kate Olsen and Neil Patrick Harris) and Red Riding Hood (with former Flare cover girl Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman) are hitting theatres this March. There’s also three Wizard of Oz themed movies currently in the works, including Surrender Dorothy directed by Drew Barrymore and starring Ellen Page.
