Cinderella Movies

Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella is set to start principal photography in the UK at the end of August.

Starring Lily James (Downton Abbey) as Cinderella and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) as Prince Charming, the Disney live action production will be based at Pinewood Studios.

Cinderella‘s script has been written by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) and rewritten by Chris Weitz (Twilight: New Moon). Simon Kinberg, Allison Shearmur and David Barron will produce.

Also starring is Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother and Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother. The wicked stepsisters are played by Sophie McShea (Downton Abbey) and Holliday Grainger (Great Expectations). Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgad will play the king’s adviser.

Originally, Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) was slated to direct, but earlier this year Branagh took over the reins.

Cinderella is the latest modern feature twist on classic tales, such as Snow White and the Huntsmen and Tangled.

It is scheduled for a March, 2015 release.

Director Kenneth Branagh has found his Cinderella.

The glass slipper fit on Downton Abbey’s Lily James, who has been cast in Branagh’s live-action version of the beloved fairy tale Cinderella, according to a release from Disney studios on Tuesday. On the PBS series James plays the feisty young heiress Lady Rose McClare, a character decidedly more “upstairs” than where Cinderella starts out.

The English actress starred in 2012’s Wrath of the Titans and is filming her second season on Abbey.

Cate Blanchett has already been cast to play Cinderella’s evil stepmother. The Disney release stated that other announcements would be coming shortly about the new movie version, which does not yet have a release date.
