On April 30th, Disney cast their Cinderella in their live action adaptation. Yesterday they announced their Prince Charming. Believe it or not, he hails from Game Of Thrones. Here is the official word from Disney.
“Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) has been cast as the Prince in Disney’s upcoming live-action Cinderella. As previously announced, the film is being directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh (Thor), stars Cate Blanchett (LOTR Saga) as the wicked stepmother and features Lily James (Downtown Abby) in the title role”.
The screenplay is being written by Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought a Zoo) and Chris Weitz (American Pie)
Cinderella has a release date of 2014. Oddly enough, that is the same release year for Maleficent.
