Hailee Steinfeld to star in Sleeping Beauty

According to industry blog Deadline Hollywood, True Grit teen Hailee Steinfeld has been attached to a Sleeping Beauty script that has yet to find a studio. The blog reports that Lindsay Devlin penned the script from the princess’s point of view.

This project is just one of many fairy tales produced by Hollywood lately. This year’s Red Riding Hood came right after a lucrative Alice in Wonderland, and titles such as Maleficent, Snow White and the Hunstman, The Brothers Grimm, Hansel & Gretel and Oz: The Great and Powerful are just some of the fantastical tales moviegoers will experience in the next two years.

Hollywood must be convinced that these investments will get them the same response as Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, which earned $1 billion worldwide for the studio.

Red Riding Hood, distributed by Warner Bros. and released March 11, has grossed a tepid $32 million.
