Now that Emma Watson is of age, who will be the next celebrity young girl who will be a creepy fixation for grown men and inspire her own ‘Countdown to Age of Consent’ website, like the Olsen Twins had? It could be Hailee Steinfeld, the young girl the Coen Bros have cast in the lead of their new version of True Grit.
Steinfeld will be playing the role of a 14 year old girl who teams up with an aging gunslinger (Jeff Bridges) to find her father’s killer. In the original the girl was played by Kim Darby, who probably was never going to get an Age of Consent site in her honor, even if she was born in the internet age.
Steinfeld is more or less a newcomer. She’ll be heading to New Mexico next month to start shooting the film, which is more faithful to the original novel by Charles Portis and comes at the story from the girl’s point of view. True Grit hits on Christmas.
