Oldman, Christie, Irons Join “Red Riding”

Max Irons has signed on while Gary Oldman and Julie Christie are in talks to join “Girl With The Red Riding Hood” for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Press Association.

This new spin on the Grimm fairy tale follows a young woman (Amanda Seyfried) in a medieval village being terrorized by a werewolf.

Christie would play the girl’s grandmother who loves to knit with a pair of silver needles. Irons plays the son of a blacksmith who is betrothed to the girl. Oldman would play Father Soloman, the Witchfinder General who must find and kill the werewolf.

Shiloh Fernandez also stars. Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight”) directs while Leonardo DiCaprio, Julie Yorn and Jennifer Davisson are producing.
