Little Red Riding Hood

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.
