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.

In July, Taylor Swift will hit the store shelves, in comic book form. The country music superstar is set to become illustrated by Bluewater Productions as part of the ‘Fame’ series. The biographical comics have included Kristen Stewart and Lady Gaga. From Bluewater:
SUPERSTAR TAYLOR SWIFT MAKES THE PAGES OF HER OWN COMIC BOOK IN JULY.
To say that Taylor Swift is riding a winning streak is an understatement. The singer/songwriter was named Billboard Magazine’s Artist of the Year in 2009. She began her 2010 by winning the Grammy for Album of the Year for her sophomore album, Fearless. That album has spent more time at number-one on the Billboard charts than has any other album since 2000.
And now, the talented musician is slated to become a comic-book hero. Swift will become the latest celebrity immortalized in sequential form when her biography comic, Fame: Taylor Swift hits comic shops this July.
The comic, by Bluewater Productions, will trace Swift’s rise from young singer/songwriter to mega-selling recording artist. It also chronicles her unwavering commitment to pushing herself. After all, this is a performer who began writing songs at the age of 10. Just one year later, she traveled to Nashville, determined to break into the country music scene.
Swift distributed her demo tape to every label in town, and received no offers. Of course, all that would change quickly. In 2006, she debuted with her self-titled album, and Swift’s life has never been the same.
CW Cooke and PR McCormack teamed up to write the Swift bio comic, while artist Erick Adrian Marquez handled the pencils. The comic features two covers, one by Marquez and a second by JuanMar Studios. This 32-page comic will retail for $3.99.
“Learning about Taylor’s life from the beginning until now made her feel like more than just the next big thing, it made me see the pop icon as a human being.” Said writer CW Cooke.
Artist Marquez said he was impressed while reading the script to Swift’s comic at the dedication the young artist showed even as a child.
“I really appreciate Swift’s – and her parent’s – drive from such a young age to be successful based on her creativity and talent,” Marquez said.
Fame: Taylor Swift is the latest biography comic from Bluewater Productions. Though the independent comic company publishes comics in every genre – superhero, fantasy, adventure and young adult – it has received significant media attention for its biography comics, which have feature such high-profile subjects as Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Colin Powell. The company’s Fame line will feature Lady GaGa, 50 Cent, Robert Pattinson and soccer star David Beckham.
“We’ve found a niche with our bio comics,” said Darren G. Davis, president and founder of Bluewater Productions. “Our success with this comics shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes or horror. With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favorite celebrities.”
Readers can advance order Fame: Taylor Swift at Amazon.com or by calling their local comic shop. They can also order Fame: Lady GaGa and Fame: Robert Pattinson, both due out in May, in the same way.

Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, Neil Patrick Harris and Mary Kate Olsen star in a modern retelling of the fairytale Beauty & The Beast.
In Beastly, Pettyfer plays the self absorbed good looking guy who has it all taken away from him by a curse and has to prove beauty is more than skin deep. Olsen gives him the hex that sets the plot in motion and Hudgens is the girl Pettyfer must get to look beyond his physical appearance. See some of the set pics here.

The movie Beastly, starring Vanessa Hudgens, Mary Kate Olsen and Alex Pettyfer has been filming since June in Montreal and a few new images are being released. The film is based on the book of the same name by Alex Flinn and is an updated adaptation of the classic Beauty and The Beast cautionary tale. Pettyfer has the role of Kyle, the self-centered guy who is turned into the beast and Hudgens plays Lindy – the beautiful girl who can change him back with her unconditional love. Some of the images are not new although I’m not sure which ones except that shirtless Alex is apparently brand new.
