Hailee Steinfeld Wants Her Revenge

Hailee Steinfeld, the Oscar nominated actress for the Coen Brothers’ True Grit and soon to be seen in Romeo And Juliet, is lining up another project, this time starring with Sam Worthington in For The Dogs.  Philip Noyce will direct the film which is based on the novel by Kevin Wignall.  The story sees an orphan set out for revenge against the people who killed her family.  Worthington will play a semi-retired hitman who saves Steinfeld from those who kill her family before the young girl turns to him to help her take her revenge.  It all sounds very similar to a certain Natalie Portman and Jean Reno film called Leon.  Rampart’s Oren Moverman has drafted the script which is hoping to find some backing at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.  Before she gets her revenge on Steinfeld will be seen in sci-fi Ender’s Game before starring opposite Kevin Costner in thriller Three Days To Kill.  Source – Deadline 

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
