Syfy is casting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" regular Felicia Day in the lead key role for its new take on "Little Red Riding Hood."

Day, a Twitter powerhouse more recently known for her web video series "The Guild," will play "a werewolf hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood" in the Syfy project, dubbed simply, "Red." The movie is set to bow in 2011 and is part of the network's new series of fairy tale reboots, announced last month.

Other classics getting modern makeovers: "Aladdin," "Sinbad" and "Hansel and Gretel." The project kicked off last month with "Beauty and the Beasts: A Dark Tale."

From the Syfy release:

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. Red also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen). Red is produced by Angela Mancuso and Vesuvius Productions in association with Chesler Perlmutter Productions.

In addition to her role of Vi in the final season of Joss Whedon's "Buffy," Day also appeared in Whedon's web-tastic "Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog."

Very cool. I'll be watching this show when it comes out.
