We're beginning to lose faith in you Catherine Hardwicke. You came on the scene with a one-two punch with "Thirteen" and "Lords of Dogtown," took a paycheck gig directing "Twilight" and yes, we understand that your musical "Hamlet" with Emile Hirsch didn't come together, but surely you can do more than retreat to another tween tentpole? Anyway, the latest trailer for "Red Riding Hood" has arrived and it will speak to the 13-year-old girl inside of you.

We're beginning to lose faith in you Catherine Hardwicke. You came on the scene with a one-two punch with "Thirteen" and "Lords of Dogtown," took a paycheck gig directing "Twilight" and yes, we understand that your musical "Hamlet" with Emile Hirsch didn't come together, but surely you can do more than retreat to another tween tentpole? Anyway, the latest trailer for "Red Riding Hood" has arrived and it will speak to the 13-year-old girl inside of you.

The film features a strong cast with Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez, Julie Christie, Gary Oldman, Max Irons, Lukas Haas and Virginia Madsen in the David Leslie Johnson (”Orphan”)-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. Gosh, what will happen to their forbidden love?! Swoon. Whatever. The whole thing looks a little overbearing and ridiculous but hey, the Oldman scenery chewing and the gorgeous set design look like it might be enough for us to grit our teeth and bear this. We mostly hope to find out where Seyfried procures that killer shade of lipstick in the woods.

"Red Riding Hood" will bare its fangs on March 11th. Trailer after the jump.
