Hailee Steinfeld Cast in DEAD OF WINTER Thriller

True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld is attached to star in a new thriller called Dead of Winter. Music Video and commercial director Anthony Mandler will be developing the feature film from a Black List script written by Sarah Conradt.

Steinfeld will play "a teen who heads to a remote cabin in the mountains with her father and new stepmother -- an experience he hopes will bring the two ladies closer together. When a dangerous fugitive posing as a park ranger shows up, the trio must put aside the family bonding to fight for survival."

What better way to bond with your family than through working together to surviving a murderous maniac park ranger! I'm sure there will be some good quality time running around, hiding, and setting up traps. It's like arts and crafts time, but they're trying to kill someone with the crafts they make. 

Steinfeld is a very talented young actress who just wrapped filming on Ender's Game and Romeo and Juliet. As for Mandler, he's directed music videos for Rihanna, Jay-Z and Eminem. This will be his first feature film.
