Hailee Steinfeld Sets Up 'Forgotten' Sci-Fi Adaptation at Paramount

February 18, 2011

Forgotten / Hailee Steinfeld

After discovering the young actress in a nationwide casting call for Joel and Ethan Coen's remake of True Grit, Paramount is ready to bank on young actress Hailee Steinfeld, especially after her well-deserved Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Now Deadline reports Paramount has acquired the rights to Cat Patrick's novel Forgotten to adapt as a starring vehicle for the 14-year old actress. The book won't be published until June, but the story follows London Lane, a 16-year old whose memory is erased at 4:33 every night. The following morning, all she can remember are events from her future. Pretty cool, right?

However, young London soon becomes frustrated when a new boy she meets at school doesn't seem to show up in her future memories. This is definitely something on the complete end of the spectrum of a western, and Steinfeld is just at the beginning of what looks to be a lucrative career as an actress. It's a little disappointing that she wasn't pushed more for Best Actress at the Oscars (she certainly deserves the honor), but I'm sure the teenage actress is just happy to be at this place in her career at her age. I'm definitely looking forward to her future project. How about you?

sweet, she stood toe to toe with Bridges, Damon, Pepper, and Brolin and came out shining, can't wait to see what else she has to offer.

Indeed, this one should have a long bright acting career ahead of her. She stood next to the best and even stole some scenes from them.

Wonderful, another possible Oscar worthy role for Hailee in the lead would be the big screen adaptation of the critically acclaimed novel, "She Rain A Story of Hope"
