Warner Bros. eager to get gothic retelling going
Dear John and Jennifer’s Body star Amanda Seyfried may be the lead in Catharine Hardwicke’s The Girl With the Red Riding Hood.
Warner Bros. is reportedly courting the actress for this werewolf-laden take on “Little Red Riding Hood.” Since its announcement last August, Orphan‘s David Johnson has been working on the script.
Hardwicke directed Twilight, and that’s clearly the success Warner Bros. is trying to crack with Riding Hood, however, many are likening the film to Shutter Island. A strange comparison, however, I think those “insiders” who have read the script are commenting on the quality of the material and tone.
