Kenneth Branagh's live-action "Cinderella" has definitely got our attention. First Cate Blanchett signed on to star as the evil Stepmother. Now repots state that Emma Watson, from "Harry Potter" fame, is in talks to star as Cinderella.
Simon Kinberg is producing the film and the re-write of the original Aline Brosh McKenna script, was done by Chris Weitz ("The Twilight Saga: New Moon"). No story details have been released yet, but it will be interesting to see if Disney embraces the darker twist on the classic fairy-tale, that many other retellings are doing these days.
Emma Watson shined in the indie-drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", and will next star in Sofia Coppola's crime-thriller "The Bling Ring". I for one can't wait to see Watson continue to dazzle and take on more roles of depth.
Branagh's "Cinderella" will hit AMC Theatres in 2014.
