Red Riding Hood 2011

Red Riding Hood is an upcoming American dark fantasy film directed by Catherine Hardwicke, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson, the writer of Orphan. It is very loosely based on the folk tale Little Red Riding Hood collected by both Charles Perrault under the name “Le Petit Chaperon Rouge” (Little Red Riding Hood) and several decades later by the Brothers Grimm as Redcap.

Plot: The film is set in the medieval village of Daggerhorn, where a young woman named Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) plans to run away with her woodcutter lover, an outsider named Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), in order to avoid marriage with Henry Lazar (Max Irons), to whom her parents have arranged she will be married, so that they can repay their debts to Henry’s wealthy father. Their plan to run off with each other is forestalled when Valerie’s older sister is found slaughtered by the mysterious werewolf that has been terrorizing their village for years. The people of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood-red moon, the werewolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people summon a famed Witchfinder General, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them track down and kill the beast. But Solomon’s arrival brings unintended consequences, as he warns that the werewolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon and panic grips the town, Valerie discovers she has a unique connection to the beast one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect and bait.
