It seems that Hollywood current fashion is to revisit fairy tales. It all started with Ever Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland that made over a billion dollars at the global box office. Now we have three Snow White movies, two Peter Pan projects and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters being prepared for to be released next year.
That’s still not it. Deadline reports that Oscar nominated True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld will be starring in Sleeping Beauty.
It seems that the plot is, of course Sleeping Beauty mixed with Inception. The story will be told from the point of view of the princess as she tries to escape the dream world. Written by Lindsay Devlin, the project is actually one of two based project on the classic tale, with Disney still developing Maleficent which had Angelina Jolie interested and Tim Burton directing.
After comics being adapted for the big screen, it is time for our childhood fairytale to be revisited. My only hope is that they don’t turn out to be Twilight.
