Hailee Steinfeld to Play Sleeping Beauty

March 29, 2011

Hailee Steinfeld is reported to be attached to a spec script of classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty.

The script, by development executive-turned-screenwriter Lindsay Devlin, would retell the classic story entirely from Princess Aurora’s point of view. That is, instead of Aurora merely drifting into a deep coma and waiting for true love’s kiss to break the spell, she’ll now enter a hazardous “dream world” from which she must try to escape. The spec script is currently being shopped around every major Hollywood studio.

As an avid reader and movie-lover, I burn through fiction as easily as breathing. I'm a film student who has created over half a dozen original short movies, and I have a love for all things Japan (I even spent a month studying abroad there). My favorite books include: "Flipped", "The Hunger Games" trilogy, the "Uglies" series, the "Star Wars" sagas, "Hana Yori Dango" (manga), "Jane Eyre", and "Pride and Prejudice". My favorite movies are: "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, the "Star Wars" movies, "North and South" (BBC), "Stardust", "Anastasia", "Lost in Translation", "Pride and Prejudice" (BBC), and "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time". I believe that if you have a passion for something, you should share it!

    Sounds interesting. Like sleeping beauty in a stronger female role

  • Maria Del Valle

    Hailee is so beautiful, the role suits her personality. Kudos!

  • Cassandra McBright

    Sleeping beauty is a classic fairytale and surely her face fits the character in the story. I hope she makes a good sleeping beauty.

  • Maria Del Valle

    She’s pretty enough to make a lovely sleeping beauty. Well if she can play the part really well is another question.

    If you are a fan of these classic fairy tales, who plays the lead role only comes as secondary consideration. But admittedly, Hailee Steinfeld is one good choice to play the role.
