Hailee Steinfeld Joins Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson in CAN A SONG SAVE YOUR LIFE?

     February 10, 2012


Hailee Steinfeld has joined Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson in Can a Song Save Your Life?, the new film from Once director John Carney.  As we previously reported, the “feel-good” romance centers on a washed-up A&R man (Ruffalo) who forms a passionate bond with a young singer-songwriter (Johansson) from out of town, and they try to help each other change their fortunes for the better.  According to THR, Steinfeld will play Ruffalo’s daughter.  Judd Apatow will executive produce, and the production is eyeing a June start date.

Steinfeld is currently shooting a period-adaptation of Romeo and Juliet co-starring Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti.  She’s also attached to play Petra in the long-awaited adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game, and she’s set to star to the sci-fi film Forgotten.  Steinfeld blew me away in True Grit, and while it currently looks like we may not see her in 2012, she’s poised to have a monster 2013.  It will be good to see her back.
