Now this is interesting news, apparently Warner Brothers has scooped up the rights to Little Red Riding Hood with plans to put a Twilight spin on the classic Brothers Grimm fable with a dark, romantic feel -- they've even hired Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke, for the project, tentatively titled 'The Girl With the Red Riding Hood'.
And if Warner Brothers gets its way, the flick will star Amanda Seyfried. It was recently revealed that Amanda was up for the part of Alice in Alice in Wonderland. But the part went to newcomer Mia Wasikowska. So it's likely Amanda will want this role.
This isn't the only film Warner Brothers has in the works that involves a supernatural aspect. They've also scooped up the movie rights to Beautiful Creatures, the first novel in a five book series about Ethan Wate, a troubled boy who meets a girl with special powers.
Perhaps Warner Brothers should have tapped New Moon director Chris Weitz though if they want a realistic-looking big, bad wolf. Since wolves didn't factor heavily in Twilight Weitz is the one with the CGI experience from the New Moon wolfpack.
