Mark Romanek’s Cinderella Takes Cate Blanchett


Cate Blanchett looks as though she may be the first cast member of Mark Romanek’s Cinderella. Deadline reports that she’s in talks to play the evil stepmother in the Walt Disney Pictures production.

First announced in 2010, the live-action project will feature a script by Chris Weitz and will feature a brand-new take on the classic fairytale, which has its origins in the 1st century BC.

Blanchett can next be seen in Warner Bros. and MGM’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, reprising her role as Galadriel.
