Could Amanda Seyfried be fulfilling fantasies as Red Riding Hood?

Feb. 19, 2010by: Niki Stephens

The retelling of the Brothers Grimm's RED RIDING HOOD has been in development for awhile now with Catherine Hardwicke (TWILIGHT) set to direct, with a script by David Johnson (ORPHAN), and Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way producing.

Look's like everything is set, except for one thing, who will don the crimson hood? The beautiful blonde with the big eyes, Amanda Seyfried is the girl that they are wanting for the part.

GIRL WITH THE RED RIDING HOOD is an update of the original tale with dark, dangerous, and romantic elements that they hope will appeal to the TWILIGHT fanbase, as well as those who just like a good fairytale. Don't be horrified just yet, the script is actually getting high marks within Hollywood. If that doesn't convince you, this statement won't either, apparently the story is a werewolf movie with a teenage love triangle. I can tell you the Twi-fans will drool at the idea of another love triangle involving a werewolf.

Will this be the new TWILIGHT? I'm going to go ahead and say no, as the world of Bella, Jacob, and Edward is a hard one to dominate and destroy.

Extra Tidbit: If they ever (seriously) wanted to add Black Cat to a SPIDER-MAN film, I'd suggest Seyfried as one of the possibilities. Feel free to disagree.

Red Riding Hood sounds... okay?

But Amanda Seyfried as the Black Cat would be great.

This could be an extremely awesome film if they took a chance with it...but considering the creatives they're already putting on the project and the whole werewolf/teen angst thing it would seem that a chance is not what they're even considering taking.

About getting highmarks in Hollywood.

The script getting high marks around Hollywood doesn't mean it's a well written story. It means it's got potential to be marketed to all hell. Not a bad thing, just don't confuse it with getting high marks for the actual good story writing.

She looks like Dakota Fanning

But Seyfried is so much better and has a great set of breasts.

mentioning that Hollywood thinks its a good read is as far from making it to a good movie as you can possibly get.

This chick is rather gorgeous and would make a fine Black Cat. Know the name but never seen her in anything, however..

All sounded great . . . until the mention of Twilight.

I could See it

A Red Riding Hood flick could be good if it stays as an adult fairy tale and not just some silly love triangle ala Twilight.

As for the Black Cat....Seyfried does have a Michelle Pfieffer kind of vibe (especially in that pic) so she could at least look the part of a character wearing black spandex and acting like a cat.

On the one hand: Thirteen.
On the other hand: Twilight.
I wish I had a third hand to hold Amanda in.

If Hardwicke is on board, then so am I. She is the only thing that saved the first TWILIGHT movie from being a complete steaming pile. She's an awesome director with a great eye and beautiful vision and remains a favorite of mine since the beautiful tribute version of LORDS OF DOGTOWN that she made.

You lost me when you said Twilight wasn't a complete steaming pile.

I just have to disagree completely... I can't stand Hardwicke. Twilight is insanely horrific... I agree with smooveluv. Lords of Dogtown... I don't know. I found it forgettable except for Emile and Heath. But the film as a whole was mediocre at best

Amanda Seyfried as Red Riding Hood excites me in more than one way. But Amanda Seyfried as red riding hood in a basically Twilight movie makes me want to puke.

I'm not sure if she is sultry enough to pull of Black Cat, but I have nothing better to offer.
