Shiloh Fernandez has been cast as Amanda Seyfried's love interest in Girl With The Red Riding Hood.
The United States Of Tara actor will play the male lead in the gothic horror re-imagining of the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale, while Amanda will star as a woman in a medieval village being terrorised by a werewolf, Heat Vision Blog reports.
Catherine Hardwicke is directing the film for Warner Bros.
Shiloh reportedly screen-tested and read seven times before being cast as Peter, an orphaned woodcutter who Red Riding Hood falls in love with, against her family's wishes.
The young actor is said to have been on the verge of getting his 'big break' for some time. He tested for the role of Edward in Twilight and for the lead in Speed Racer.
He has appeared in TV shows United States Of Tara, Jericho and Three Rivers.
