Blanchett Rumored to Join Remake of ‘Cinderella’

We’ve seen a lot of Disney classics recently get the live-action treatment. Well add another to the list…Cinderella. The film has been in production and planning since 2010, but now we’re starting to find out a few more details about the project.

Rumor has it that Cate Blanchett (Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings) will be joining the film as its first major addition. Blanchett would be assumedly playing the role of the evil stepmother. It will be interesting to see how the story plays out; whether or not they simply remake the Disney classic, revamp it to modern standards, or go back to the original literature. We do know that Mark Romanek is slated to direct the film and may draw inspiration from a screenplay about Cinderella directed by Chris Weitz.

There aren’t many details out there about the film, but we’ll be sure to break them to you as we hear more. It begs the question, though…which classic would you like to see remade?
