The adolescent not-so-Little-Red-Riding-Hood is back in a brand new trailer for Catherine Hardwicke’s sexed up adaptation. Red Riding features Amanda Seyfried as the title character who goes on that daunting journey to grandma’s house. In this version, there’s sex, violence, some gore, and did we mention sex? What’s that doing in this anyway? Check out the trailer…
The script for Red Riding Hood was written by David Leslie Johnson, who previously penned the screenplay for the horror flick Orphan. This version of Little Red Riding Hood is supposed to be a darker and more adult take on the story. Besides Seyfried, the cast includes Gary Oldman, Lukas Haas, Virginia Madsen, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, and Julie Christie as the grandmother (we’re still mad she signed on for this).
This isn’t our cup of tea. It looks just like the first Twilight movie but without the vampires. Hardwicke is obviously still living in the past. She’s gotta let it go. And what’s with her obsession with taking stories and filling them with sexual angst? Enough is enough already.
Red Riding Hood opens in theaters on March 11, 2011.
