Annie star Lilla Crawford is to make her feature film debut as Little Red Riding Hood in director Rob Marshall's retelling of stage hit Into The Woods.

It was believed that British Internet sensation and Tv regular Sophia Grace had landed the role, but now insiders insist child star Crawford will portray the wolf whistleblower in the movie musical.

Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine are among the big names who have been cast in the ambitious project, which is scheduled for release next Christmas (14).
