Amanda Seyfried’s Romantic Interest Cast in Hardwicke’s ‘Riding Hood’

Some exquisite casting news tonight as Joaquin Phoenix/Johnny Depp look-alike Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red) has nabbed the male romantic lead in The Girl With the Red Riding Hood, Warner Bros.’ gothic horror re-imagining of the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale. Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, Twilight) is directing the pic, in which Amanda Seyfried (Jennifer’s Body) will play a woman in a medieval village being terrorized by a werewolf. The studio is making sure they’re happy with their choice (and they sure as hell should be) as Fernandez is said to have screen-tested and read seven times before nabbing the role of Peter, an orphaned woodcutter for whom Seyfried falls, much to the displeasure of her family.
