Steinfeld heads towards Homesman

Hailee Steinfeld could play an impoverished teenager in the film

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to star in drama The Homesman.

The Oscar-nominated starlet could be seen on the big screen with Tommy Lee Jones, who is directing, co-writing, producing and starring in the period piece, reported Deadline.

The 16-year-old actress would join acclaimed performers such as Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, James Spader, John Lithgow and Tim Blake Nelson in the movie.

Tommy is set to play a man who teams up with a pioneer woman (Hilary) to escort three insane women across the prairie back to civilisation, with Hailee tipped to play a impoverished teenager.

She will next be seen in musical drama Can A Song Save Your Life? with Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, and Carlo Carlei's Romeo And Juliet remake, where she has been cast as Juliet.

Hailee - who received an Oscar nod for her performance in True Grit - will also be in sci-fi film Ender's Game, and French action thriller Three Days To Kill.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
