Sleeping Beauty... a sex-drama starring Emily Browning?

Feb. 10, 2010by: George Merchan
Well, this sure isn't your father's SLEEPING BEAUTY. Your degenerate uncle's, maybe.

The Playlist is reporting that young Aussie actress Emily Browning (LEMONY SNICKET, THE UNINVITED) will be leading the cast of first-time filmmaker Julia Leigh's SLEEPING BEAUTY.

The decidedly non-fairytale story, written by Leigh (and one of 2008's Black List scripts), is being described as "a haunting erotic fairy tale about a student who drifts into prostitution and finds her niche as a woman who sleeps, drugged, in a 'Sleeping Beauty chamber' while men do to her what she can‘t remember the next morning."

SLEEPING BEAUTY: The feel good movie of the year... for date rapists!

Browning comes aboard replacing fellow Aussie gal Mia Wasikowska, who you'll soon see as the titular Alice in Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Browning also just recently completed Zack Snyder's SUCKER PUNCH, having replaced actress Amanda Seyfried.

Armed with a $10 million budget, Julia Leigh's SLEEPING BEAUTY looks to begin production in Australia sometime next month.

yeesh...

I like Browning since Unfortunate Events and I've always wanted to get more roles and I'm really looking forward to how she does in Sucker Punch but I don't know about this flick. It sounds really fucking creepy.

This sounds depressing. I don't get how someone would find it sexy or hot (pointing at neuroticnikk). Could be good could be bad.

It might not be your father's 'Sleeping Beauty', but it seems much closer to your great-grandfather's 'Sleeping Beauty' than Disney's ever was.

In some early versions of the tale, Sleeping Beauty isn't woken with a kiss from her prince charming, she's raped in her sleep by him. Eventually, she gives birth in her sleep and is eventually woken when one of her newborn babies suckles on her fingertip, removing the poisonous thorn.

Finally

Sounds like something that Hollywood has been avoiding for ages. Eroticism and an interesting concept.

Sounds fairly creepy. And not in a fun way.

Now if it had been based, even a little bit, on Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty novels...THAT would have been interesting. She is awakened by the Prince...by his having sex with her. And what's more, he turns her into a sexual slave of his. That would have been more interesting...and a little less [link]

I like it. As long as she's naked in it for as long and as often as possible. Doesn't even have to be during the sleeping beauty scenes.
