Hailee Steinfeld To Be Sleeping Beauty

Fairy tales continue to be the new period pieces. In addition to dueling Snow White movies, it looks like there is now a race for a revisionist Sleeping Beauty flick. Today, it was announced that Hailee Steinfield of “True Grit” is attached to a Sleeping Beauty project. Oh, but it won’t be the standard take. In this version, Princess Aurora is stuck in a terrifying dream world she has to try to escape. In other words, it’ll take more that just a prince’s kiss to wake her. This movie sounds cool—kind of like the classic tale meets “Inception”—but I was already pumped for Disney’s “Maleficent,” which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the eyes of the evil witch-turned-dragon. Plus, that one will most likely be directed by Tim Burton. What do you think—can the world handle two dark Sleeping Beauty retellings? [MTV]
