Hayden Panettiere Replacing Anne Hathaway in 'Hoodwinked' Sequel


Hayden Panettiere Replacing Anne Hathaway in 'Hoodwinked' Sequel


One of the stars in television hit series 'Heroes' has agreed to voice Red and simultaneously fill in the gap left by Anne Hathaway in 'Hoodwinked 2: Hood Vs. Evil'.

The sequel to family animation comedy "Hoodwinked", "Hoodwinked 2: Hood Vs. Evil" will no longer hear the voice of Anne Hathaway, the clumsy princess in "The Princess Diaries", as Red Puckett but instead it will have "Heroes" beauty Hayden Panettiere as the voice actress. The replacing of the lead actress news was outed by the film's writer Cory Edwards himself through his blog.

Edwards' posted message read, "There are some brand new and very cool additions to this sequel. This time around, Red will not be voiced by Anne Hathaway, but by Hayden Panettiere, the 'super cheerleader' from Heroes." Further, he revealed that the changes made may be for the better. He reasoned, "This seems very fitting, since Red becomes a bit more of a "caped crusader" in this film."

Another casting replacement was done for the character of The Woodsman a.k.a Kirk. The character will now have his voice from comic legend Martin Short who replaces James Belushi. Apart from the two new cast member, Edwards noted that most of the original cast, including Glenn Close, Andy Dick and Patrick Warburton, have agreed to reprise their role in the movie's sequel.

    Replacing Hathaway is hard to take. She made Red work for me. Also Martin Short always over-does accents and I fear that the lovable woodsman will take on a rediculous persona. The reason a cult favourite becomes a classic is because of all the subtle things the original had. I really hope they don't spoil it.
