Amanda Seyfried has been spotted wearing Little Red Riding Hood fancy dress for a new movie adaptation of the classic fairy story.

The Mamma Mia! actress has the starring role in The Girl With the Red Riding Hood, which is set to hit cinemas next year.

A gothic adaptation of the Brothers Grimm tale, the new flick is set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf.

Meanwhile, a young girl falls in love with an orphaned woodcutter, even though her family does not approve.

It has the same director as Twilight - Catherine Hardwicke - so cinemagoers can expect plenty of extravagant outfits, including the obligatory Big Bad Wolf fancy dress costume!

This is not the first time a fairytale has been converted into a horror film - Snow White: A Tale of Terror was released in 1997 and delighted fans of dark yarns with its jumpy moments.
