Harry Potter’s Emma Watson looking to play Cinderella in the new Disney Cinderella movie. According to a new report from Variety , former Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson is currently in talks to possibly take on another legendary role as the classic Cinderella in Disney’s new movie of the same name.
Disney refused to comment about their talks with Emma,and they also considered actresses Gabriella Wilde (“The Three Musketeers”), Saoirse Ronan, and Alicia Vikander (“Anna Karenina”), but couldn’t lock down deals with them due to scheduling and other conflicts. We’re definitely hoping that Emma gets it with her cute self.
Director Kenneth Branagh is on the payroll to direct it, and Simon Kinberg will produce. Actress Cate Blanchett is going to play the wicked stepmother. Disney is hoping to start up,filming the new Cinderella flick in the fall 2013,and have it released into theaters sometime in 2014.
Also, Allison Shearmur of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and David Barron of “Jack Ryan” ,will help produce with Simon Kinberg. Stay tuned. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Tumblr by Clicking Here.
