Amanda Seyfried is on board to star in upcoming Catherine Hardwicke-directed movie, "The Girl with the Red Riding Hood". After rumored to be on the short list of the potential leading lady, the 24-year-old has confirmed she will tackle the part when she was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet of the 82nd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, March 7.
The project which will be directed by the "Twilight" director is said to redirect teens' fascination with sex and supernatural beings onto a Little Red Riding Hood picture with the story that will put a modern twist on the classic fairy tale. Leonardo DiCaprio produces it through his Appian Way and David Leslie Johnson is hired to write the script.
Starring as Sophie Sheridan in musical film "Mamma Mia!", Amanda Seyfried makes a stunning performance when sharing lesbian scene with Megan Fox in "Jennifer's Body". Her latest movie "Dear John" has successfully become a hit at Box Office when it was released in early February this year. The former child model will later appear as a seductive young woman in "Chloe" which will hit U.S. theaters on March 26.
