Hailee Steinfeld cast in For The Dogs. The casting of Hailee Steinfeld in For The Dogs (2014) answers the question of who will play the female lead in the Phillip Noyce directed film. Hailee Steinfeld will be joined in For the Dogs by Sam Worthington. Hailee Steinfeld will play Ella Hatto, “a teenage girl who wants revenge on those who murdered her parents and younger brother. [Stephen Lucas]’ guidance unleashes events that ultimately stoke her thirst for vengeance while he desperately seeks peace and absolution.”

More on the plot of the book, For the Dogs, the film is based on:

Ella is young, bereaved, and in danger.

Lucas is ruthless, brutal, and cold.

Think again.

Ella is bitter, determined, and dangerous.

Lucas is vulnerable and lovelorn.

Ella Hatto is on vacation in Italy with her boyfriend.

It’s a beautiful summer evening in a small Tuscan town, and her life is all about the things she doesn’t know.

She doesn’t know her family is dead.

She doesn’t know she’s being watched, or that she’s in danger.

She doesn’t know how rich she is or the murky truth of where that money came from.

She doesn’t know that a man is about to cross the street, ending her old life forever.

When Lucas, a retired contract killer, agrees to help her avenge her family’s death, Ella is drawn into a world she cannot control, a world from which Lucas wants only to escape.

For the Dogs is a stunning thriller in which avenging the past becomes a deadly business that never ends.
