The film (the trailer is embedded above) won’t be released until March, but the print book and enhanced eBook version will come out on January 25th. Hardwicke wrote an introduction to the novel and fans can download a bonus chapter on March 14th.
Here’s more from the release: “Debut author Sarah Blakley-Cartwright has crafted a lyrical thriller, adapting the movie’s story into a stunning stand-alone work that will have readers eagerly anticipating the film’s opening. Blakley-Cartwright wrote Red Riding Hood from a unique and coveted vantage point — she was on set every day with Hardwicke weaving in details from the world created for the film.”
