First Look at Amanda Seyfried in Hardwicke's 'Red Riding Hood'
And now for something different. We've written about aliens and robots, so how about a first look at a dark new fairy tale instead? I've been waiting to get a glimpse at Catherine Hardwicke's new take on Red Riding Hood, mainly because I'm curious how she's going to extended the story into a full feature and put a unique spin on it for today. Our first look at Amanda Seyfried in this is actually not that impressive, because it's a scanned page from the latest Entertainment Weekly that ShockTillYouDrop put online and it's not really the best quality, but it'll do for now. And yes, there is actually a photo of Seyfried wearing the "red riding hood."
In the dark retelling of the famous children's tale, Seyfried stars as Valerie, a village girl torn between two loves. The threat of demons and werewolves further complicates the love triangle, along with a priest (Gary Oldman) obsessed with ridding his village of evil, and any townspeople hiding their own secrets and lies. Red Riding Hood was directed by Catherine Hardwicke (of Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, The Nativity Story, Twilight) from a screenplay by David Johnson (of only Orphan). It also stars Shiloh Fernandez, Lukas Haas and Virginia Madsen. Warner Bros is bringing Red Riding Hood to theaters starting on March 11th, 2011.
