Twilight Director Adapts Red Riding Hood

Catherine Hardwicke, the filmmaker who brought the first Twilight film to the big screen, has directed what appears to be a dark adaptation of Red Riding Hood. The trailer is embedded above.

David Johnson based his script on the Grimm Brothers‘ version of Little Red Riding Hood. Amanda Seyfried (star of the recent adaptation of Nicholas SparksDear John) stars alongside Gary Oldman (who co-starred in several Harry Potter films).

The tale of Little Red Riding Hood has existed for 700 years. The earliest known printed version was found in a 1697 story collection by French fantasy author Charles Perrault. The title in French is Le Petit Chaperon Rouge. (Via Ace Showbiz)
