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.

    Thought it would have been a good movie but all the f bombs/constant cussing where unnecessary and the sexual innuendos where disgusting! The actions scenes were done rather well and the plot was good, just bad screen writers. Could have been a movie for everyone. Hope there is no sequel, if there is, it is NOT getting my money again

    I would love to see a sequel. And I agree with having someone with no action movie experience but is still as kick butt as Colin Firth!
