The first official look at Amanda Seyfried in Catherine Hardwicke's forthcoming "Red Riding Hood" has arrived and what can we say? She looks the part.
The film features a strong cast with Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez, Julie Christie, Gary Oldman, Max Irons, Lukas Haas and Virginia Madsen in the David Leslie Johnson ("Orphan" and one of the writers hired to write "Clash of the Titans 2") penned screenplay which takes the Brothers Grimm-like tale and sets it in a medieval village haunted by a werewolf. Seyfried is in the titular role as a girl who falls in love with an orphaned woodcutter (Fernandez) though she's engaged to marry the son of a blacksmith (Irons) with the overarching story centering on the haunting presence of a werewolf in the village they call home. It sounds like it could be a gothic sleeper; let's keep our fingers crossed.
The film will hit theaters on March 11, 2011 and we would imagine a trailer should drop any day now. [EW via STYD]
