The Weinstein Company and Kanbar Entertainment are teaming on "Hood vs. Evil," the sequel to "Hoodwinked"
Intended to repeat the success of "Hoodwinked," the Weinstein Company and Kanbar Entertainment are teaming on its sequel. The highly anticipated animation comedy will be titled "Hood vs. Evil."
As of its story, "Hood vs. Evil" will find a teen Red training in a distant land with a mysterious, covert group called Sisters of the Hood. She is then called upon by Nicky Flippers -- head of the Happily Ever After Agency -- who teams her with the Wolf to investigate the disappearance of Hansel and Gretel. The character of Granny, and the rest of the "Hoodwinked" gang, also return and are joined by new characters.
The voice talent of Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close, Jim Belushi, Patrick Warburton, Anthony Anderson and rapper Xzibit will probably back on the project as the film producer Maurice Kanbar said he expects most of the cast to return. "Hoodwinked" creative trio Cory Edwards, Todd Edwards and Tony Leech also are back to write and direct.
