SyFy's Red

Well, SyFy just may get some of us to watch one of their fairy tale movies with the casting news for their interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood that will be appear next year. Yes, not until 2011.

From Syfy Puts Felicia Day In Her Own Fairly Tale by Graeme McMillan:

We may have been uncertain about Syfy's new fairy tale Saturday Night Original Movies, but that was before we learned that Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse's Felicia Day had gotten involved in a case of near-perfect casting.

Syfy announced today that Day will play "a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood" in Red, a Syfy Channel Original Movie scheduled to premiere next year. According to the press release, Day won't be the only werewolf-hunter in the movie:

In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancĂ© home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He's skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him.

There are many news stories about this press release, but this was my favorite...

And aren't you at least a little tempted by Felicia Day as Red?

And in similar news, today it was confirmed that Amanda Seyfried [Is] To Star In Catherine Hardwicke's 'Red Riding Hood'.

    {sigh} Yes, yes I am... but still doubtful. After all, Richard Dreyfuss was in Tin Man and that still stank.
