Kenneth Branagh, who captivated audiences with his Chris Hemsworth-starring "Thor", is back at the helm again for a live-action version of "Cinderella". It's being reported that Stellan Skarsgard is the latest actor in talks to join the cast, and he will be playing the king's advisor, the Grand Duke. The two had previously worked together on "Thor, as Skarsgard portrayed Dr. Erik Selvig, and will be reprising the role in the sequel.

The film already stars Lily James as the title character and Richard Madden who plays the King of the North on HBO's "Game of Thrones" as her prince. Cate Blanchett no doubt will shine as the wicked stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter will balance her out as the fairy godmother.

Branagh should present a fresh take on the classic fairytale. Embracing the dark and stylistic tones he's becoming known for, I can't wait to see how he brings this world to life.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
