Rumors say the producers of the Stephen King adaptation have put Hailee Steinfeld (‘True Grit’) at the top of their casting wish list. If she takes the part, she’ll get a $10 horse.
This is the spot where I would put a fitting quote from ‘Romeo and Juliet’. I wish I was smarter.
We’re now at three and counting.
Lawrence officially did get the part in ‘Hunger Games’, a film franchise that’s getting hyped as the new ‘Twilight’. *Confetti*
Every young actress in Hollywood is after the lead in ‘Hunger Games’, based on the first in a series of dystopian novels by Suzanne Collins, that are apparently similar to – what else? – ‘Twilight’.
Producers were looking for an attractive white girl to play the lead. Well, against all odds, they found some.

Her performance in True Grit paquined her into the hearts of the Academy and now Paramount wants to drill into that appeal and convert it to dollars.
It’s a good thing True Grit is a good movie, otherwise the critics would have had a field day rhyming with Grit.
Releasing one bad-ass poster for True Grit just isn’t enough to appease those Coen Brothers. As the film’s December release draws near, the marketing team is beginning their full press.
What is this? ‘The Wicker Man‘? Hot on the heels of last week’s True Grit teaser comes the full length jump off. This time around we see a lot more…
The teaser for Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit just rode into town, and it looks like a good one. The action follows Hailee Steinfeld's Mattie Ross as she teams with Jeff Bridges to hunt down the coward that killed her pappy. You might be quick to say that the Coens are trying to recapture the magic of No Country For Old Men, but that I really don't see the similarities. For instance, this teaser keeps it fresh with sun-bleached Western scenery, gunfights, Josh Brolin, and dorky haircuts. Oh.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
After casting a nationwide net, Joel and Ethan Coen have found an actress to portray the young protagonist in their True Grit remake. Thirteen-year old Hailee Steinfeld will be joining forces with Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon to hunt down Josh Brolin. Though Steinfeld isn't as popular as her co-stars, all of that is going to change. Her character, the fourteen-year old Mattie Ross, is described as a “simple, tough as nails, young woman in post-Civil War Arkansas. Her unusually steely nerves and straightforward manner are often surprising to those she meets. She possessed plenty of true grit and determination."Let's hope that Hailee Steinfeld is every bit as precocious as the character calls for. Remember, fourteen-year olds in Arkansas are considered mature for their age. They're at least mature enough to legally wed. (Deadline)
