Kenneth Branagh Found New 'Cinderella' Who Is Not Emma Watson
Well, Disney wasn't able to close talks with Emma Watson, but don't worry, they haven't given up on having someone or other be in a Cinderella movie.
Now they've reportedly hired Lily James to lead their latest fairy tale adaptation, which already has Cate Blanchett signed as the wicked stepmother. Collins has only been in things for a few years, but some may remember her as Korrina in Wrath of the Titans or, more recently, as Lady Rose MacClare in Downton Abbey. Kenneth Branagh is directing, and is currently at work prepping the film by thinking only princess thoughts.
