  • LRM Online
Emma Watson may have turned down her chance to be a Disney princess, but the studio is still looking for their next Cinderella. According to new reports, Kenneth Branagh is testing other up-and-coming actresses for the lead role in the live-action version of the Disney classic.

Among the few actresses being considered are Bella Heathcote, who appeared alongside Johnny Depp in the movie Dark Shadows; Lily James, who got into mischief as Lady Rose on Downton Abbey; and Margot Robbie, who was a stewardess-in-training on Pan Am.

Cate Blanchett is still playing the role of the evil step-mother, and Game of ThronesRichard Madden is being eyed to play the part of the Prince.

Disney wants to film Cinderella this fall, and release sometime in 2014. But in order to do that, and be successful, they’ll need to find the actress with the right shoe size… and pronto.
