The last time we talked about Disney’s upcoming Cinderella
, we reported
that Richard Madden
is officially on board as… well, the handsome prince, who else? Now comes the word that lovely Holliday Grainger
is in some serious talks to join the project as well, and if negotiations with The Borgias
star work out – she will jump in to play one of Cinderella’s beautiful but mean stepsisters.
So, as we previously reported, Kenneth Branagh
is on board to direct a live-action reimagining of the classic fairy tale from a script written by Aline Brosh McKenna
and Chris Weitz
And you already know what the whole thing is about – once upon a time there lived an unhappy young girl
, and stuff like that.
So far (beside Madden), Cinderella
cast includes Lily James
in the title role and Cate Blanchett
as her evil stepmother.
Now, thanks to TheWrap
, we know that Grainger is making a deal to play one of Cinderella’s beautiful but mean stepsisters who constantly ridicules the protagonist.
And that’s pretty much all we know about the project at this moment. Let us also add that Allison Shearmur, David Barron and Simon Kinberg are producing the project, which starts production this fall.
As usual – for more updates – make sure you stay tuned!
