David Johnson based his script on the Grimm Brothers‘ version of Little Red Riding Hood. Amanda Seyfried (star of the recent adaptation of Nicholas Sparks‘ Dear 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)
