But the story will be a bit changed: young Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld (TRUE GRIT) will star in the new version in which the Beauty is in her sleep trying to escape the world of dreams.

They are given a simulated Earth environment called Hollow to see if they can survive, although tensions between the groups leads to all-out fighting.
