LILY JAMES CAST IN DISNEY’S “CINDERELLA”
The Slipper fits! With news of a Live-Action version of the timeless tale being announced recently, Disney has confirmed that British Actress Lily James gets the coveted Titular Role of Cinderella, the Film to be helmed by Thespian Sir Kenneth Branagh. A release date for the Film is forthcoming, but so far Cate Blanchett is attached to play the Evil Stepmother, Lady Tremaine.
Although many know her for her work as Lady Rose MacClare in iTV‘s Downton Abbey, James also created an impression on controversial and superb Secret Diary of a Call Girl, playing the role of Poppy for that same Network. If that doesn’t say range, I don’t know what does.
More news to come soon!
