It appears that Hollywood is ready to remake and re-imagine any story possible and even classic fairytales are not safe. Recent adaptations have included films such as Snow White and the Huntsman featuring Kirsten Stewart (The Twilight Saga) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor), as well as the upcoming Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) and Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace), and now the newest story to be re-told is Cinderella.
According to Deadline, Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) is set to be the first cast member to sign on to Mark Romanek's (Never Let Me Go, One Hour Photo) new version of the classic fairytale and is in talks to play the wicked stepmother in the Walt Disney Pictures production.
