Hardwicke swaps bloodsuckers for howlers

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.
