On the same day her Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe reportedly closes in on leading Frankenstein, it seems that Emma Watson may be circling another remake of a classic tale. Variety reports the actress is closing in on the title role of Cinderella, the upcoming live-action adaptation from Walt Disney Pictures.
If she agrees to the role, Watson would be starring alongside potential wicked stepmother Cate Blanchett and reuniting with director Kenneth Branagh. The Thor helmer is leading the production, based on screenplays by Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz.
Production is expected to begin this fall in London with hopes to have it in theaters by late 2014.
