Seems the imaginative update of "Little Red Hiding Hood" fairytale is about to have the second chapter. Variety has revealed that Michael D'Isa-Hogan has come onboard to direct "Hoodwinked 2: Hood Vs. Evil", a sequel to the 2006 CG animated "Hoodwinked."
A directorial debut of D'Isa-Hogan, who previously served as an animator to Disney's "Home on the Range", the project has already had Cory Edwards, Todd Edwards, and Tony Leech all returned to pen the script. Meanwhile, Maurice Kanbar and David K. Lovegren will both produce for Blue Yonder Films and Kanbar Entertainment with The Weinstein Company distributing.
The first installment of the series, released widely on January 13, 2006, is the re-telling of the classic fable revolving around Chief Grizzly and Detective Bill Stork who investigate a domestic disturbance at Granny's cottage that involves the Red Riding Hood, a sarcastic wolf, and an oafish Woodsman. It fared quite well on the box office, grossing around $51 million domestically and $109 million worldwide.
