Hailee Steinfeld may have missed out on The Hunger Games due to her age, but the young Oscar-nominee is showing no signs of slowing down.  In addition to circling an adaptation of the upcoming novel Forgotten, Steinfeld is now attached to lead a re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty.  According to Deadline, Lindsay Devlin’s script tells the story from the eponymous princess’ point of view and has her fighting to find a way out of the dream world.  While I’m getting a little sick of these re-tooled fairy tales, I like the premise of this one.  The story of waiting for a prince is stale and a smart director could have some fun telling the tale from Aurora’s point of view.

However, if Sleeping Beauty moves forward (the script is currently out to buyers) it will have plenty of competition when it comes to fairy tale re-imaginings.  Hit the jump for list of just some of the public domain properties that Hollywood is banking on.

While Catherine Hardwicke’s re-imagining of Red Riding Hood tanked, studios are still moving full-speed ahead with movies based on other fairy tale characters because the level of Red Riding Hood‘s failure doesn’t come close to the billion-dollar success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

There are two Snow White projects: Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, and The Brothers Grimm: Snow White starring Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer.

There’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, and Famke Janssen.

Sony picked up the Peter Pan prequel Pan starring Channing Tatum and Disney is considering an adaptation of Peter and the Starcatchers, which is also a Peter Pan prequel.

And there’s a bunch of Wizard of Oz-based movies in development, but the one furthest along in development is Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful starring James Franco and Mila Kunis.
