Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (Paramount Pictures) With Clash of the Titans, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and the James Bond flick Quantum of Solace under her belt, Gemma Arterton was pretty much primed to topline her own high profile action film.  She gets her chance, opposite Jeremy Renner, as the two play the titular heroes in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

While promoting the underrated drama Tamara Drewe a couple of years back, Arterton said that even with her success in film, one of her biggest goals is to direct theater.  “I suppose my ultimate goal is to direct theater,” said Arterton.  “And that’s why I do varied work all the time.  I just want to learn enough about it that people will listen when I try to direct them in something (laughs) and respect it.  But every time I get a new part offered or I go up for something, I’m always surprised what it is.  I’ve not got anything in my mind on what I want to achieve, I just want to do good work that I’m proud of.”
