Look out, Angie! Oscar-nominated Hailee will star as the Princess in a re-telling of the fairy tale! Angelina wants to play the Evil Witch in an other version. Who do you think fits their classic role better?
Hailee Steinfeld and Angelina Jolie could be fighting out in competing fairy-tale movies! Deadline.com reports that young Hailee now is attached to the script for Sleeping Beauty. The news comes amid rumors that Angelina is hot for a big part in Maleficent — Tim Burton‘s upcoming version of the timeless story.
Haillee, 14, shot to stardom in True Grit — snagging a nomination for Best Supporting Actress! The new Sleeping Beauty will tell the tale from the Princess’ point of view as she tries to make her way out of the dream world. Not too bad for Hailee, who was also said to be up for the role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games — before it was snagged by Jennifer Lawrence.
The billion-dollar success of Tim’s Alice in Wonderland made fairy tales the next big thing in Hollywood. The blockbuster lineup ahead includes Snow White and the Hunstman with Twlight‘s Kristen Stewart in the lead; The Brothers Grimm: Snow White starring Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, and a new Peter Pan with Channing Tatum.
So it’s no wonder Angie wants in — even if it means playing a nasty role like the Evil Witch! That could really scare her kids!
