Hailee Steinfeld Hopes to Become Sleeping Beauty

She didn't snag the lead role in The Hunger Games, but Hailee Steinfeld is hoping to sleep it off. Deadline is reporting that the True Grit discovery has attached herself to Sleeping Beauty, which is — you guessed it — a revisionist take on the classic fairy tale. (Despite Red Riding Hood's mild box-office take, Hollywood has continued to mine fairy tales as though they were distaff comic books, with new versions of Snow White, Peter Pan, and Hansel and Gretel all on the way.) In this reimagining, Steinfeld's princess will enter a dream world when cursed and will have to fight her way out; hopefully, she won't take her tips from the girls of Sucker Punch. [Deadline]
