Universal Wants Writer Ann Peacock to Re-Imagine Cinderella

8 September 2011 7:41 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Disney made headway on a new live-action Cinderella last month with the hire of director Mark Romanek.  But as we've seen with the dueling Snow White movies, the appeal of fairy tales---known properties in the public domain---is too great for just one studio.  Universal is throwing their hat into the ring, and according to Variety, the studio is turning to Ann Peacock for help.  Peacock is in final negotiations to rewrite an "untitled reimagining of the fairy tale" from an earlier draft by Michael Dougherty.  Specific plot details are under wraps, but barring any drastic changes, the premise should look familiar when Universal is ready to go public with the synopsis: a young girl is whisked away from her terrible home situation by her fairy godmother to a magical ball where she meets the aptly named Prince Charming. Peacock's credits are diverse, from Kit Kittredge: An American Girl to The Killing Room »
