Hardwicke swaps bloodsuckers for howlers
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is swapping vampires for fearsome wolves - she is set to adapt classic fairytale Little Red Riding Hood for the big screen.
The filmmaker helmed the first big screen outing of the phenomenally successful bloodsucking saga, which focuses on a teenage girl falling in love with a century-old vampire.
And Hardwicke is keen to sink her teeth into another fantasy tale by taking on The Girl With The Red Riding Hood - a retake on the original fairytale.
The adaptation also deals with a teenage love triangle - much like the Twilight books, in which a werewolf and a vampire vie for Bella Swan's affections.
Bizarrely, Hardwicke was set to direct a band of wolves on New Moon before she was replaced by director Chris Weitz - the film focuses on a band of teens who transform into the beasts to battle vampires.
