Leonardo Dicaprio Making a Gothic "Little Red Riding Hood" Movie

Posted: August 5th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Leonardo Dicaprio Making a Gothic "Little Red Riding Hood" MovieSubmit Comment
Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company is developing a Gothic reimagining of "Little Red Riding Hood" with screenwriter David Leslie Johnson (Orphan).

The "Red Riding Hood" project has been developed internally at Appian Way but isn't being positioned as a possible acting vehicle for DiCaprio.

The best-known version of the story -- in which a wolf disguises himself to fool a girl delivering food to her sick grandmother in the forest -- was published in the 19th century by the Brothers Grimm. Earlier oral versions of the tale, which date back to the Middle Ages, are far darker and sometimes involve a werewolf rather than a wolf; the first published version, by Charles Perrault, concludes with Red Riding Hood eaten by the wolf, with no happy ending.

I think it could be pretty badass, so long the use the song 'Lil Red Riding Hood by Sam the Sham over the end credits.

i'm not sure about this one...as far as gothic went or punk...i liked 'freeway' with reese witherspoon and keifer sutherland....intense f*cking movie

Furthermore, there are some questionable "seduction" issues in one version of the tale (I think the Perrault one.) Basically the little girl starts to strip down named in order to seduce the wolf and try for an escape.

@synthetic1985: Good call my friend! Freeway is the best RRH spin I've ever seen. You haven't seen Witherspoon true talent until you've seen Freeway. Talk about f*cking bloody!

Just watch Freeway. Demented Red Riding Hood has been done before...but this is "different" because it's gothy and emo.

Synthetic and Sacdaddy: Ya gotta love the Texas trash accent-

REESE: You keeled my GRANMAWWWW!!!!
KEIFER: That's not all I did to Grandma...

He totally did the old broad hahaha. Anyways I dont think you can get a darker red riding hood than a stalker/pedophile chasing a 16 year old jailbait Trickbaby.

Little Red Riding Hood is a whore. I've had her.

@Ranger

Who hasn't?

Why does there need to be a gothic remake of every childrens story, why not just remake the wizard of oz and put a gothic spin to it (like those McFarlene action figures they released a while back)?

What this above story dosent tell you and what a lot of people dont know is that in the original the wolf rapes red riding hood! So unless you're going to justify the original story with that twist I suggest not making it at all. Werewolf?! seriously?! f*cking no way!
Ranger writes:
on August 5th, 2009 at 1:07:21 PM

So the red hood is her bleeding vagina? HAWT!
Ranger writes:

I've heard, once you've had wolf, you'll never go back!
Ranger writes:
on August 5th, 2009 at 1:14:35 PM

I'll bet if they do the rape version of this story, Lohan will be tripping over herself to offer to do it for FREE!

Ranger, the wolf wouldn't touch her, let alone rape her. The wolf spread Lohan's legs apart and almost fell into the gaping fire-crotch void. Hell, that thing is dangerous, in fact, Gary Coleman is still trying to crawl out of the saggy flesh tunnel. *Shudders*

actually all the child hood stories like these were actually horror stories, so hopefully if this is done right, it will be more of what the original story line was. Just hope its got a good story line as well as a good cast.

Great...Emo Red riding hood...wait, then would it be red??

I could totally imagine this in some kinda original setting..Steampunk or cyberpunk. Lil Red hunting down the wolf for eating her grandmother. But as it is, it might just be kinda boring.
Ranger writes:

How about 'Ranger's - Ride me 'til you're a little Red!'?
