Oscar Nominee Hailee Steinfeld's Next Starring Role Will Be The Forgotten For Paramount
Though she's still at the top of nearly everyone's fantasy cast list for the forthcoming adaptation of the Hunger Games novels, True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld has picked a different project for her first post-Grit starring role, and she's sticking with the studio that helped her become an Oscar nominee. According to Deadline Paramount is setting up their adaptation of Cat Patrick's novel Forgotten as a starring vehicle for Steinfeld.
The 14-year-old will be aging up a little bit for the part, playing a 16-year-old girl whose memory is erased at 4:33 in the morning each night while she sleeps, but who can remember events from the future. When she meets a boy she likes and has no future memories of him, she gets understandably worried about her future with him. The book will be published in the summer, and presumably Paramount is counting on it becoming some level of teen hit that fans will be fervently anticipating. No word on when the film will go into production, but if they're trying to capitalize on a hit, it will likely happen within the year.
