Amanda Seyfried has started filming the upcoming Red Riding Hood movie which is set to be released March 11, 2011. It will be directed by Catherine Hardwick who directed Twilight and Thirteen. It will be about none other than werewolves and teenage romance… no surprise there. But there is some hope that it will have some twisted and gothic elements since the Orphan screenwriter David Leslie Johnson wrote the script.
“The Girl With the Red Riding Hood [now titled Red Riding Hood]” was first announced in August. Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company picked up the rights, and a few weeks later came word that Hardwicke had signed on to direct. She described the plot as a “super sexy” take on the classic fairy tale that deals with a “village plagued by this wolf.” [via MTV]
