She earned an Oscar nomination for the critically acclaimed "True Grit," but Hailee Steinfeld's next project could be a real snooze.
The teen star is being eyed to play Sleeping Beauty in a new live-action adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Deadline reports.
Don't expect Steinfeld to sleepwalk her way through the role, however. According to Deadline, the movie will delve into Sleeping Beauty's dream world and follow her as she attempts to find her way out while awaiting the awakening kiss of a handsome prince. (Hmm… Justin Bieber anyone?)
"Sleeping Beauty" is the latest in a long line of live-action fairy tales to hit the big screen. Besides last year's hit "Alice in Wonderland" and the recent "Red Riding Hood," there are two "Snow White" movies in the works, and both "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" and "Jack the Giant Killer" are in the pipeline.
Angelina Jolie is also said to be working on a "Sleeping Beauty" project of her own called "Maleficent," in which she'll play the witch who sends SB off to Slumber Land.
