Vulture reports that director Kenneth Branagh is in talks with Disney to direct a new live-action take on Cinderella.
Mark Romanek was previously attached to the project, but he was announced as no longer being the director in January. The studio is looking for a fall start in London for the movie. Cate Blanchett is attached to play the wicked stepmother. The production is still looking for the new Cinderella actress.
The project is being produced by Simon Kingberg. The script was originally written by Aline Brosh McKenna. The latest draft from the script comes from Chris Weitz.
