Hailee Steinfeld Is The New “Sleeping Beauty”

14-year old Oscar nominee and “True Grit” scene stealer Hailee Steinfeld is attached to Lindsay Devlin’s revisionist script take on the classic fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” reports Deadline.

While the tale will remain the same of a princess waiting for a charming prince’s kiss to awaken her from a witch’s curse, this version will be told from her point of view and will spend a lot of time in a dream world which she has to find her way out of.

The spec package has just gone out to buyers. The film is not to be confused with Disney’s “Maleficent” which puts the focus on the witch character made famous in their 1959 animated film.
