It seems Helena Bonham Carter is going to continue working with Walt Disney Studios. The star of both The Lone Ranger and Alice in Wonderland has joined the cast of Disney’s live action Cinderella. This is an interesting bit of casting as Carter and Cinderella’s director, Kenneth Branagh, worked together before on Branagh’s Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.
Official Press Release: Helena Bonham Carter (The Lone Ranger) has been cast as the fairy godmother in Disney’s upcoming live-action feature Cinderella, directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh (Thor). Previously announced casting includes Cate Blanchett (Lord of the Rings) as the wicked stepmother, Lily James (Downtown Abby) in the title role and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) as the prince.

Cinderella is slated for a 2014 release.

 That's going to be one weird and twisted Fairy Godmother.  That may make it a bit more interesting if they go a slightly darker route.

meh, i guess this falls into the category of genre...

didn't Ever After already do this?

this junk gets high profile, but Hannibal continues to get nothing....

No interest in this movie, but for what it's worth, it's Downton Abbey, not "Downtown".

 That means Johnny Depp will be in this movie as well.  I don't think one can make a movie without the other.

 Sorry but just cannot imagine her in a happy "good-guy" role after the Harry Potter movies i think that may be the only way i can picture her

Lily James as Cinderella? Now, aside from being painfully thin and having a rather thick English accent, she is awfully plain no matter how much make up could be spackled on to her face. Geez... She could pass for one of the step-sisters without even trying.

She's just on the short list because of the popularity of Downton Abbey

I can't explain why, but Downton Abbey rocks.

When I read the headline, I saw her more as the wicked stepmother (since she seems to gravitate to those dark, nasty, psychotic roles).  But seeing her as the fairy godmother will be interesting.

I assume Johnny Depp will be Prince Charming?

I like it for the costumes.
