Gary Oldman may portray Father Solomon
We reported yesterday that Max Irons has signed on to a new film with Amanda Seyfried and now it seems two more actors could join the cast as well. Heat Vision Blog is reporting that Gary Oldman and Julie Christie are in talks to star in The Girl with the Red Riding Hood.

Oldman would portray Father Solomon, who is the Witchmaster General in charge of finding and killing the werewolf that has been stalking Amanda Seyfried's character. Christie, who hasn't appeared in a studio film since the 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, would play Seyfried's grandmother, who passes the time by knitting with silver needles.

Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) is directing the film, which also stars Shiloh Fernandez.
