Leonardo DiCaprio Wants Gothic "Little Red Riding Hood" 


A Gothic reimagining of "Little Red Riding Hood" is in the works, thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production. David Leslie Johnson, the guy who wrote "Orphan," is set to write the screenplay.

The story of "Little Red Riding Hood" is gothic already -- big bad wolf eating kids -- but through the years, it's been sanitized. So I suspect that DiCaprio and company will go back old-school from when the story was first popularized.

The story by Charles Perrault, the author of the first published version, has Red Riding Hood being eaten by the wolf, and has no happy ending.

Don't look for DiCaprio donning a red riding hood anytime soon though, or a Big Bad Wolf costume for that matter. The actor is not going to be in the film, he's just producing the gothic version.
