Catherine Hardwicke(pictured with Robert Pattinson) left the "Twilight Saga" before its Quileute shape shifters took the stage, but it looks as though the indie director will get the chance to dance with wolves (or at least one big, bad one) after all. Catherine has signed on to helm "The Girl With the Red Riding Hood," Variety reports.
The film is described as a "gothic retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood story, with a teenage love triangle at its center." Hmm, a teenage love triangle, you say? That sounds familiar. But how likely is it that we'll see a few familiar (read: "Twilight") faces in the fairy tale revamp? Pretty likely based on Catherine's track record of recasting stars.
After working with writer-actress Nikki Reed in the troubled teen movie "Thirteen" and "Lords of Dogtown," the 21-year-old was cast as bitter vampire Rosalie Hale in Catherine's "Twilight." Nikki's "Dogtown" costar Emile Hirsch is also a Catherine favorite having been recently cast in her modernization of the William Shakespeare play "Hamlet."
And speaking of "Hamlet," Catherine recently told MTV News (watch the clip below) that "two 'Twilight' stars have auditioned." OME! But just to be clear, Catherine added that "Hamlet" filming will coincide with "Eclipse" filming, so only minor players in the saga will have the time to moonlight. But that still leaves ample opportunity for the likes of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, et al to sink their teeth into Catherine's retelling of the classic fairy tale.
