I completely understand the whirlwinds bred out of love for vampires and werewolves. They're powerful, they're mysterious, and they often have a nice amount of lusty machismo to make the young ladies go wild. But wolfy prey? Little red riding hood wolfy prey? While not the sort of theme one would usually expect to get dueling projects, there's now a feature film and television film about the young wolf victim in the works. It just goes to show you what happens when you mix supernatural passion with the trend to remake old tales.

First, The Playlist noticed that on the red carpet at the Oscars, Amanda Seyfried confirmed that she will star in The Girl with the Red Riding Hood. You know, the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced feature that Catherine Hardwicke is helming and Seyfried was circling last month. (The feature Hardwicke is also describing as "super-sexy.") Second, Entertainment Weekly reports that web goddess Felicia Day will star in a Syfy flick called Red. She'll be a descendant of the famous Little Red Riding Hood, who "brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business -- hunting werewolves. He's skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him." It's quite the apt casting for the girl who was once a newbie Slayer.

Romantic Little Red Riding Hood movies. Whoulda thunk it? And how long until we get a saucy teen version of Hansel and Gretel?
