Red Riding Hood: From Script to Screen Book Review

About the Book: From Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke comes the romantic fantasy thriller Red Riding Hood. Torn between two men, the beautiful young Valerie is about to choose her heart’s desire when her sister is murdered by a werewolf. Panicked, the people call on famed werewolf hunter Father Solomon, who warns that the werewolf could be among them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to fear that the werewolf could be someone she loves. But her fear is tinged with curiosity when she discovers her unique connection to the beast—one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect . . . and bait.

Red Riding Hood stars Amanda Seyfried (Letters to Juliet, Mamma Mia!), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, the Harry Potter films), Billy Burke (the Twilight films), Shiloh Fernandez (Skateland, TV’s Jericho), Max Irons (Dorian Gray), Oscar®-nominee Virginia Madsen (Sideways), and two-time Oscar®-winner Julie Christie (Away from Her, Darling).

Our Take: We're all for new fantasy movies...especially anything that will distract people from those terrible Twilight films.  Yes, the irony is that this film is directed by one of the Twilight directors! lol.  The new Red Riding Hood may not have lit the box office on fire when it was released, but its a rather good movie.  Today we're checking out the shooting script for the film.  Its released in softcover format from Insight Editions, who is famous for some really great pop culture titles, usually based on film or television.  The cover features a striking, minimalist pic of Red Riding Hood with her glossy cape draping down a snowy mountain.  The interior of the book features not only the full script, but also TONS of full-color images from the movie, production sketches, pre-product artwork and notes from the director!  This book is a perfect collectors item for any fan of the film.
