Hailee Steinfeld set to star in Dead of Winter

Hailee Steinfeld is to star in new survival thriller Dead Of Winter. The 15-year-old Oscar nominee will play a teenager whose family bonding trip goes horribly wrong in the film, Variety reported.

Hailee’s character joins her father and new stepmother in a remote cabin in the woods in a bid to improve their relationship. But when a dangerous fugitive posing as a park ranger arrives on the scene, the trio are forced to put aside their differences in the fight for survival.

Music video and commercials director Anthony Mandler will be behind the camera of the film, written by Sarah Conradt. Producers are hoping to begin filming in early 2013 and casting for the other roles is yet to be announced. Mandler has previously directed music videos for Rihanna, Jay-Z and Eminem.
