Amanda Seyfried Joins New Red Riding Hood
Amanda Seyfried, star of the upcoming thriller Chloe, has signed on for a new adaptation of Red Riding Hood.
According to the LA Times, Seyfried will play the title role in a retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, to be helmed by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.
The film will be called The Girl With The Red Riding Hood and will be penned by generically named David Johnson and produced by Leonardo Di Caprio’s company Appian Way.
Hopefully this film will be a dark version as we’re tired of seeing Seyfried in shiny happy dramas; she’ll be appearing in the upcoming Dear John and Letters To Juliet. We want more stuff like Chloe where she displays more dramatic chops and a dark underbelly (amongst other things).
