‘Red Riding Hood’s Amanda Seyfried (below) has popped up once again in a new still from the upcoming Catherine Hardwicke (‘Twilight’) project. This time our star can be seen cautiously stepping out into the cold in her red hood get up. The fairytale adapted by scribe David Johnson (‘Orphan’) co-stars Gary Oldman (‘Leon’), Lukas Haas (‘Inception’), Virginia Madsen (‘Candyman’), Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Michael Hogan and Julie Christie. Check out the new still below.
“In “Red Riding Hood,” Seyfried plays Valerie, a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie’s older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon’s arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. As panic grips the town, Valerie discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast–one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait.”
‘Red Riding Hood’ hits US theatres on 11 March 2011.
