Hailee Steinfeld is receiving a big honor! The Romeo & Juliet star will receive the “CinemaCon® Female Star of Tomorrow Award” at this year’s CinemaCon. CinemaCon, the largest and most important convention for the motion picture theatre industry, will be held from April 15-18, 2013 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas at which time more than 5,000 industry members will be gathering. Steinfeld will be presented with this special honor at the “CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards” ceremony to take place on Thursday evening, April 18, in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
“Having already garnered an Oscar® nomination, not to mention international acclaim for her big screen debut in ‘True Grit,’ Hailee Steinfeld will continue to show audiences this coming year just how amazing a young actress she is with five new films set to hit theaters,” noted Managing Director Mitch Neuhauser. “Can you imagine working opposite Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin in your very first film and under the direction of Joel and Ethan Coen no less? We cannot think of a more exemplary young actress to be named this year’s ‘CinemaCon Female Star of Tomorrow.’”
Hailee definitely is a star of tomorrow and has a ton of projects launching in the next few years. She can be seen later this year in “Ender’s Game” and will also star later this year opposite Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Catherine Keener in “Can A Song Save Your Life?”; in “Hateship, Friendship” opposite Guy Pearce, Kristen Wiig and Nick Nolte; in “Three Days to Kill” opposite Kevin Costner; as well as in the new cinematic adaption of Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet,” opposite Douglas Booth, Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti.
