Amanda Seyfried plays the title role in Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke’s dark, edgy film adaptation of the classic fairytale Little Red Riding Hood.
“Red Riding Hood is a classic fairy tale that we all know, and what fans can expect from this version of the story is that it’s basically just a jumping-off point,” Seyfried has revealed to MTV’s The Seven.
“Catherine Hardwicke has just completely turned this story into something edgy and gothic and dark, and she’s clearly somebody that’s very capable of turning something, everything into an extraordinary world, as we’ve seen before. And also there’s a romance aspect to the film, which isn’t in the fairy tale… a lot of romance and a lot of danger. There’s a wolf at the centre of the story, and it’s exciting ’cause it’s a whodunit,’” she explained.
Seyfried also promises fans a gothic side of the story that has entertained schoolchildren for generations.
“Fans will be surprised by the tone of the film. Catherine just completely throws it into this dark world, and it’s a little scarier than it was meant to be when it was written. We had this freedom to go far with it, so whatever preconceptions the audience has, they should throw it out the door.”
Red Riding Hood hits theaters Stateside on March 11.
