Shiloh Fernandez cast in Red Riding Hood

Has Hardwicke found the new R-Patz?

Shiloh Fernandez has been cast as the leading man to star alongside Mamma Mia! 's Amanda Seyfried in Girl With The Red Riding Hood .

Although having small roles in films such as Cadillac Records and Gardens of the Night , the young actor is better known overseas for his range in TV roles.

Playing the role of Peter – an orphaned woodcutter who Seyfried’s character falls in love with – the role is a chance for the film’s director Catherine Hardwicke to give Fernandez the big break he was hoping for when he originally tried out for the role of Edward in Twilight .

The film is said to be a gothic take on the Brothers Grimm classic of Red Riding Hood, and with Hardwicke at the helm it promises to be interesting.

And with the casting of Robert Pattinson look-a-like, we wonder – is S-Fedz the new R-Patz? Let us know!
