Actress Amanda Seyfried is set to take on the lead role in The Girl with the Red Riding Hood. The film will be directed by the original Twilight helmer, Catherine Hardwicke and Seyfried feels she’s in great hands:
“I’m always kind of careful about what I choose,” Amanda said. “I had known [Catherine] kind of a little bit before, when I was dating Emile Hirsch [who worked with Catherine on 'Lords of Dogtown'], and I had been to her house before. That was years ago. And when I had met with her again, she talked about this movie. I completely fell in love with her idea and trusted her form that moment on, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m down.’ “
Hardwicke is putting together another amazing cast: Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons and (hopefully) Gary Oldman and Julie Christie. Just don’t expect this gothic update of the classic fairytale to be twilight-ish. Hardwicke says no way to the imitation.
I love how this is coming together. Seyfried seems great for this role and if you add Oldman – you can’t lose.
