Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld is attached to a new spec script entitled Sleeping Beauty, which takes a much different look at the classic fairy tale character.

Lindsay Devlin wrote this new spec script, which is centered on the title character as she is asleep, trying to escape her dream world. The project is currently being shopped around to financiers, and is expected to find a home rather quickly.

Disney is also developing its own Sleeping Beauty project entitled Maleficent, which is being written by Alice in Wonderland screenwriter Linda Woolverton.

Hailee Steinfeld, who made her feature film debut in True Grit, is also attached to Forgotten for Paramount Pictures. We reported on that project last month, but it isn't clear when production will start on either Forgotten or Sleeping Beauty.
