Inspired by the beloved fairy tale, Red Riding Hood is a dark and edgy take on a classic story, that’s full of passion, mystery and danger. Taking things one step further, the DVD/Blu-ray combo pack (due out on June 14th) contains an alternate cut of the film that features an all-new ending not seen in theaters, along with filmmaker and actor commentary, behind the scenes features, casting tapes, rehearsals, deleted scenes, a gag reel and music videos.
During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke talked about her decision to do an alternate cut of the film, instead of just including deleted scenes, why she thinks commentary is such a useful learning tool, what she enjoys about the casting process and finding the perfect actor for a role, and the impression that the story of Red Riding Hood made on her, when she first heard it as a child. She also talked about what it means to her to have been a part of something that was emotionally meaningful for people, as the director of Twilight, and how she’s in development on The Bitch Posse,which follows a trio of high school friends into adulthood, as their lives are torn apart by a terrible secret. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
