Felicia Day will star in Red a Syfy original movie as a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood.
“Red brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business - hunting werewolves. Red' fiancé is skeptical until he is bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him."
The story line sounds horrible and it is a Syfy original which does not bode well for the project. I’m also confused why Red isn’t the descendent of the woodsman.
Making her the descendent of little red riding hood sends mythological mixed messages about the film. Will she be naive and unprepared not heading the wisdom of her elders. Are we to expect after a scarring experience with her fiancé she will be saved by some axe wielding woodsman. I would be upset if they put Felicia into such a weak role especially if they want us to believe she is a successful werewolf hunter.
Felicia Day is in it so I will have to watch. Red is scheduled to premiere in 2011.
