Max Irons to star in ‘Red Riding Hood’

Thesp joins Seyfried, Fernandez in horror project

Warner Bros. has tapped Max Irons to star opposite Amanda Seyfried and Shiloh Fernandez in horror project “The Girl With the Red Riding Hood,” to be directed by Catherine Hardwicke.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way banner launched development of the project last summer as a Gothic reimagining of “Little Red Riding Hood” with screenwriter David Leslie Johnson.

Seyfried will be the center of a romantic triangle with Irons and Fernandez portarying the love interests.

The best-known version of the story — in which a wolf disguises himself to fool a girl delivering food to her sick grandmother in the forest — was published in the 19th century by the Brothers Grimm. But earlier oral versions of the tale, which date back to the Middle Ages, are far darker and sometimes involve a werewolf rather than a wolf.
