Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, is developing a dark gothic take on Little Red Riding Hood. As if the original story wasn’t already pretty dark.
Little Red Riding Hood, however, is not being planned as a starring vehicle for DiCaprio. Shame. I think he would have made an awesome wolf in gramma garb. (I know, I know, he probably would’ve been the damn hunter.)
I know the formula for this kind of thing. Just drop the word “little” from the title and you’ve got yourself a bona fide gothic reimagining. Still, it might be kinda cool. Perhaps with the right director…(just not Tim Burton, please, that’s waaaaaaayyy too obvious.)
