Catherine Hardwicke "Little Red Riding Hood" Trailer + Interview with The Hero Complex

'Little Red Riding Hood' is Catherine Hardwicke's next upcoming movie. The new trailer debuts today.

“Wouldn’t it be cool to do a Gothic twist on Red Riding Hood, with the wolf being a werewolf, and just have a cool, sexy romantic thriller?” says Catherine.

RK: After making “Twilight,” where fans felt such ownership over the story, is this a film in which you can create your own visual world?

CH: I think so. There’s so many versions of Red Riding Hood. It goes back 700 years. It’s much more open to
interpretation. At the end of the fairy tale she’s saved by a
woodcutter. That’s one of the reasons why we have the houses all out of
heavy construction. We stayed true to the oldest telling of the stories
in a lot of ways. There’s a great book called [Bruno Bettelheim's] “The Uses of Enchantment,” delving
into the meaning and philosophy of fairy tales and why these stories
have endured and gotten under our skin. That was very inspiring to me.

RK: Who are the men competing for Red Riding Hood’s affections?

CH: One of them is Peter, played by Shiloh Fernandez. She feels he is her soul mate, but he’s had more of a troubled past.
They love each other but that’s not the way her mother wants Amanda’s
life to go. She wants her daughter to have a better life and arranges a
marriage with Henry, who’s played by Max Irons, the son of Jeremy Irons. He’s a very striking-looking kid, as is Shiloh, who’s very soulful. Shiloh was my runner-up for Edward in “Twilight” but he and Kristen [Stewart] didn’t have the instant chemistry lock that is now well-known.

it just sucks that the movie is already getting bad critism b/c it was made my catherine who directed of COURSE people are already saying it's going to be crap b/c she directed Twilight and we all KNOW that Twilight is the devil reincarnated in movie form according to "critics"(Sarcasm all the way folks) and it sucks that people aren't even giving it a chance b/c of who the director was...if she hadnt directed it people would be like OH THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO BE GREAT! but now they're calling it a "twilight knock off" and "this is going to be lame b/c it's going to be shitty just like twilight" and others are saying that "they arent even going to watch the trailer b/c it's got to be crap b/c it's directed by Catherine"..I'll be the first to admit that I was let down by Twilight..I didn't like the blue effect at all and some of the scenes came off as a bit cheesy, but for others to criticize a movie just b/c of the director is stupid.

sorry for the rant... :)

I don't give a s*** what these ignorant (critics) people have to say before the entire movie even comes out...
In fact I think that'll just make even More people go see this movie, it looks too enticing and all of the actors seem perfect in playing their roles so I think it will just be too tempting for these jackholes to eventually go
and see LRRH. Poor Catherine, seems like she'll never catch a break after Twilight....BUT SHE WILL because
this movie appears too enchanting with a great storyline. ~GO CATHERINE!!!

I do think it looks a lot of like Twilight with better's kinda sad that back then she didn't have much money with Twilight. But I think this looks really good and I'll def go see it!
