Hailee Steinfeld ("True Grit") will star opposite Sam Worthington in Phillip Noyce's adaptation of Kevin Wignall's novel "For The Dogs".

Worthington plays a solitary assassin seeking peace and absolution who agrees to help a precocious teenager (Steinfeld) exact revenge on those who murdered her parents and younger brother.

His guidance unleashes events that ultimately stoke her thirst for vengeance.

Oren Moverman wrote the script, while Worthington, Anthony Rhulen, Navid McIlhargey, John Schwarz, Michael Schwarz and Paul Leyden will produce.
