Earlier this month it was reported that Harry Potter star Emma Watson was in talks to star in director Kenneth Branagh's live-action Disney adaptation of Cinderella. Well, she's not going to do it. Variety’s Marc Graser reported that the actress has decided that she doesn't want to do it. As far as I know though, she's still attached to star in Guillermo del Toro's Beauty and the Beast.
Cate Blanchett is still set to star as the evil stepmother, and it will be interesting to see who Disney's second choice will be. Mark Romanek was originally attached to direct the film before Branagh came on board, but apparently his vision of the story was too dark for Disney's taste.
Can you think of another actress you'd like to see play Cinderella?
