We may have been uncertain about Syfy's new fairy tale Saturday Night Original Movies, but that was before we learned that Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse's Felicia Day had gotten involved in a case of near-perfect casting.
Syfy announced today that Day will play "a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood" in Red, a Syfy Channel Original Movie scheduled to premiere next year. According to the press release, Day won't be the only werewolf-hunter in the movie:
In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He's skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him.
Sure, it may not be Rose Red from Fables, but Felicia Day as Red, whether with or without Riding Hood, makes us very happy. The werewolf hunting thing is just a bonus. Now all we have to do is get Day and her Guild co-creators to be in complete creative control of the next fairy tale movie...
