Red Riding Hood: March 11
Warner Brothers releases what sounds like a TWILIGHT-take on the classic fairy tale – directed, naturally enough, by TWILIGHT-helmer Catherine Hardwicke. Amanda Seyfried stars in the title role, a young girl who falls for an orphaned woodcutter (Lukas Haas); unfortunately, there is a werewolf lurking about the medieval village. We’re not sure that turning the Brothers Grimm story into a love triangle offers much opportunity for interesting plot developments – presumably, this werewolf will come across like a medieval version of Jacob. David Johnson wrote the script. Gary Oldman, Billy BUrke, Virginia Madsen, and Julie Christie co-star.
