Disney is shifting their casting efforts to find the title character for Cinderella, after Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett entered negotiations to play the evil stepmother earlier this week. Saoirse Ronan (The Host), Alicia Vikander (The Seventh Son), and Gabriella Wilde (Carrie) will be testing to play Cinderella in the near future.
Disney has been developing the project since 2010, when the studio acquired a pitch by screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought a Zoo). Chris Weitz wrote the current screenplay draft based on the initial pitch, which Mark Romanek will direct from.
