A Live-Action Cinderella in the Works


Deadline New York is reporting that Walt Disney Pictures has made a deal with screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna (27 Dresses, The Devil Wears Prada) to write a live-action reimagining of the classic fairy tale “Cinderella.” Simon Kinberg will produce.

The site says that it’s not known whether the movie will be released in 3D or if there will be deviations from the original story. While most people know the story from Disney’s 1950 animated classic, there are variations going back as far as the 1st century BC.

McKenna’s credits also include the upcoming Morning Glory and We Bought a Zoo.
