Holliday Grainger is in talks to join the new CINDERELLA movie alongside Cate Blanchett , Lily James and Richard Madden. The story follows Cinderella (James) who must fight her way out of the enchanted forest in order to prevent a prince (Madden) from entering a marriage that will destroy the kingdom. Grainger would play one of the evil stepsisters.
Chris Weitz is rewriting a script by Aline Brosh McKenna for Kenneth Branagh to direct. Producing will be Simon Kinberg, David Barron and Allison Shearmur.
Grainger tends to gravitate towards the ‘fancy dresses’ period pieces such as “Anna Karenina”, “Bel Ami”, “Great Expectations” and current on Showtime’s “The Borgias”.
She is repped by IFA Talent Agency.
