The terror hottie that had so big a hand in bringing us Twilight–Catherine Hardwicke–has a new target in mind for trying to keep you up nights. She’s working on an adaptation of, get this!…Little Red Riding Hood. But in the standard Catherine Hardwicke sense, there will be a love triangle involved, and even more standardly, it will involve teenagers.
Now, most of us are familiar with the whole Little Red Riding Hood concept, but what not everyone’s already aware of is that Little Red Riding Hood has darker endings that generally aren’t taking into account. Some versions have Red Riding Hood facing off against a werewolf. Others have Red Riding Hood get eaten in the end.
The first might be more sinister than the second in this case. Werewolves. Catherine Hardwicke. The woman who may well be most responsible for damaging the vampire genre, aside from Stephenie Meyer herself, wants to tackle werewolves next? I cringe for the genre.
I weep too, frankly.
