A live action Cinderella by Disney is in the works. The movie is written by Chris Weitz and will be directed by Mark Romanek. Cate Blanchett is currently in negotiations to play the Evil Stepmother. While Variety reports that Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander and Gabriella Wilde are eyed to play Cinderella.
I am soo looking forward to this. The last time we saw a period Cinderella was Ever After. And I loved Ever After. And there was also Ella Enchanted. That was surprisingly fun. After that there was a bunch of present day Cinderella movies...Remember Hilary Duff's A Cinderella Story...which was just annoying.
We'll probably soon here casting news for Prince Charming and the Evil Stepsisters.
