Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney's CINDERELLA.— Marc Graser (@marcgraser) March 12, 2013
Kenneth Branagh is directing from a screenplay by Aline Brosh McKenna and The Twilight Saga: New Moon's Chris Weitz. Its not yet clear which direction this live action reboot is headed, though Disney's Alice in Wonderland reboot and the upcoming Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty told from the witch's point-of-view) should serve as some indication.
We'll let you know if Emma Watson's decision to pass is related to something noteworthy when that news breaks.
Cinderella comes to theaters March 13th, 2015 and stars Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Hayley Atwell, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgård, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera. The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh.
