We heard earlier this week that Cate Blanchett was in talks to play the terrible Lady Tremaine in the upcoming live action remake of Disney’s (storyline taken from a fairytale) Cinderella but now Variety reports that there are at least three lovely ladies vying to slip their foot into that infamous glass slipper.
Ireland’s very own Saoirse Ronan, Swedish star Alicia Vikander (who played Kitty in Anna Karenina) and Gabriella Wilde (the pretty blonde wan from the recent Three Musketeers remake) are all on the short list. Well, if the slipper fits!
The Walt Disney Pictures live-action project was first announced in 2010 and will feature a script by Chris Weitz. We’re hearing that it’s going to be brand-new take on the classic fairytale, which has its origins in the 1st century BC. Ok so, just don’t do a Snow White and the Huntsman. Please.
