Kenneth Branagh is testing three more young actresses for the titular lead of CINDERELLA. And those three ladies are Bella Heathcoate, Lily James and Margot Robbie. I guess they’re the next step down after Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander and Gabriella Wilde all turn you down.
In this ‘re-imagined’ version of the tale Cinderella must fight her way out of the enchanted forest in order to prevent the prince from entering a marriage that will destroy the kingdom. Here’s hoping her glass slippers eject diamond-edged ninja stars!
Producing will be Simon Kinberg.
