Emma Watson is in talks to star as the famous princess, Cinderealla, in a live-action adaptation for Disney. Watson became an overnight sensation back in 2001 when the first Harry Potter film was released. She was cast as Hermoine; Harry's brilliant, and loyal friend. Watson has actually put together a respectable resume away from the Harry Potter series.
I think she will nail it if she signs the deal! She's beautiful, and is a tremendous actress. Her eyes alone can tell a story, and I think that's important for Cinderella. The character is an abused, and neglected young woman who finds beauty in the simple things in life. Want to hear who the perfect casting choice is for the evil stepmother?.... Cate Blanchett is attached to star.
The movie is going to be directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor). I think he is a great choice to create the world of Cinderella. He did a wonderful job with Thor; and helped to create interesting characters in an interesting world. Branagh wasn't the studio's first choice. Originally the movie was going to be directed by Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo). But he was let go after his 'extremely dark' take on the film, didn't align with Disney's vision. What do you think about Watson as Cinderella?
