'N SYNC star Joey Fatone is letting out his inner beast for his new movie role - he'll be playing the wolf in a musical based on the classic fairytale LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD.

Fatone began shooting the movie, called RED RIDING HOOD, this week (ends25JUL03) in the Los Angeles area. Newcomer MORGAN THOMPSON is playing the title character, while Cassandra Peterson, better known as ELVIRA, is also on board.

Red Riding Hood will be a modern version of the fairytale about a young girl walking through a forest to visit her sick grandmother, with contemporary dialogue and music.

Fatone, who has starred in On the Line, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and on the Broadway stage in RENT, most recently played a lounge singer in The Cooler.
