According to the article, instead of simply falling into a coma and waiting for Prince Charming to come rescue her, she will be cast into a dreamworld and must fight to escape.

If it does get made, Sleeping Beauty would join a long list of fairytales being developed by Hollywood, including THREE different Snow White adaptation and another Sleeping Beauty title called Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the evil witch's point of view.
