Hailee Steinfeld to star in ‘True Grit’

Coen brothers cast newcomer in Western drama

Hailee Steinfeld has won the role of 14-year-old Mattie Ross in Paramount’s redo of Western classic “True Grit,” which Ethan and Joel Coen begin lensing next month in New Mexico.

She’ll star alongside Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin.

The Coen brothers, who penned the script, are producing “True Grit” with Scott Rudin. Pic is set to open Christmas Day.

In “True Grit,” Mattie Ross teams with Rooster Cogburn (Bridges), a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. marshal, in the hunt to find her father’s killer (Brolin), who has fled into Indian territory. A Texas Ranger (Damon) is searching for the same criminal, but for a different murder.

Steven Spielberg is exec producing.

Steinfeld is repped by ICM, Coast to Coast Talent Group and Protege Entertainment.
