Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way is developing a Gothic retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with screenwriter David Leslie Johnson. Variety reports that the Warner Bros.-based Appian Way is developing the project internally, but there are no signs that DiCaprio will star. Appian Way also worked with Johnson on current horror release Orphan.

The classic tale, made famous by the Brothers Grimm in the 19th century, is about a wolf who disguises himself to trick a girl delivering food to her grandmother.
