After Emma Waston passed on the chance to play the peasant turned princess, Disney‘s been on the search for just who’s going to fill that glass slipper, and as Deadline reports, they’ve narrowed it down to three: Bella Heathcoate (Burton’s Dark Shadows), Lily James (Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Downton Abby) and Margot Robbie (Pan Am, Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street). All three actresses fall under unknowns – I mean, do you recognize any of those names? – and the hope is who ever stars in Cinderella will score a boon of popularity like Mia Wasikowska did from her role as Alice. Which of these three would you cast?
You better choose well, because whoever snags the lead role could be waltzing at the ball with none other than Richard Madden, Game of Thrones‘ Young Wolf, King in the North, Robb Stark, who is topping the list of potential princes. And at this very moment I’d like to make a very apt comment, but due to spoilers for Thrones‘ third season, I’ll abstain, but you book readers should hopefully know what I’m thinking.
Anyway, things seem to progressing nicely for the Kenneth Branagh-directed fairy tale. And things aren’t slowing down for live-action, fairytale adaptations, either. Before Cinderella, which is expected in 2014, there’s still Maleficant starring Angeline Jolie coming next year.
What do you think of the live-action, fairytale fad?
