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.

Amanda Seyfried’s latest film, the gothic thriller The Girl with the Red Riding Hood, has found it’s leading man. Actor Shiloh Fernandez is set to play Peter, the woodcutter that Seyfried’s character falls for. Catherine Hardwicke, director of the first Twilight movie, is setting the stage for the werewolf tale that reinterprets the classic fairytale.
Fernandez, who also has a part in Ashley Greene’s Skateland, (click here for a peek) was one of the final four actors Hardwicke had in mind for Edward Cullen.
Filming heads to Vancouver in July and the movie is due in spring of 2011.
