Okmagazine: It’s hard to deny the similarities between Twilight and the new film Red Riding Hood. But Amanda Seyfried insists they are quite different — even though Twilight/Red Riding Hood director Catherine Hardwicke may have called her Kristen Stewart on set!
“It’s a bummer that that’s what’s happening,” she said of the comparison, adding that she doesn’t like it when “an audience has [certain] expectations.”
But she can understand the comparisons since Catherine directed both films, and Twilight dad, Billy Burke, plays a father in Red Riding Hood, too!
But Amanda and her co-stars Max Irons and Shiloh Fernandez (compared to Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner) had fun with the comparisons on set.
“We’d make jokes about [Hardwicke] calling us Kristen and Rob and Taylor,” Amanda said.
And Shiloh was actually considered for Rob’s Twilight role as Edward Cullen!
“Yeah, I mean it does surround a girl coming of age in a love triangle, but that’s a lot of movies,” Amanda admitted. “The truth is, it’s an entirely different story.
“I think audiences are going to be really surprised when they end up seeing this movie because … there’s so many elements and there’s so much going on,” she added. “It’s a murder mystery as well as a coming-of-age movie, and there’s a lot of tension and it’s scary. All those elements combine to be thrilling, I think.”
