If Snow White and the Huntsman, Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and Michael Bay’s Hansel & Gretel have taught me anything, it’s that it’s foolish to not milk the teat of half an idea for all its creamy goodness. That’s why it comes as no surprise that deceptively mature-looking True Grit actress Hailee Steinfeld is attached to a re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty.
The spec script gives Sleeping Beauty a lot more to do than just lay there like Sammi from”Jersey Shore.” This version is told from Beauty’s point of view as she navigates the dream world searching for a way out. What will set this apart from Maleficent, Tim Burton‘s take on the same classic fairy tale? Or the erotic thriller version starring Emily Browning? This one will have less groping and probably won’t feature Helena Bonham Carter. (Deadline)
