List: If the Slipper Fits... Five Cinderella Reinventions

29 August 2008 7:32 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

By Matt Singer

What happens when you put the classic Cinderella story together with a modern setting or flip the protagonists' sexes? A whole lot more than bippity-boppity-boo. In honor of the new film "Year of the Fish," a self-proclaimed "Cinderella in a Chinatown massage parlour," here are five more unique reinventions of this durable fairy tale popularized by French author Charles Perrault in 1697. Read quickly, though: at the stroke of midnight, this article turns back into zeros and ones.

"Ever After" (1998)

Directed by Andy Tennant

The Brothers Grimm are called before the Grand Dame of France (Jeanne Moreau) to set the record straight on the "real" Cinderella, who had no magical benefactors or means of conveyance, though she did get some wardrobe support from Leonardo da Vinci (Patrick Godfrey). Actually named Danielle De Barbarac (Drew Barrymore), she was living in servitude to her stepmother, Baroness Rodmilla (Angelica Huston) when »

Hathaway Studied To Hide From Fame

25 August 2008 12:19 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Anne Hathaway struggled to cope with fame - and escaped the limelight by studying for a degree.

The Get Smart star shot to fame in 2001 after appearing in Disney hit The Princess Diaries, and followed up a successful stint in the teen market by starring in Ella Enchanted in 2004.

But Hathaway found it difficult to adapt to media scrutiny at such a young age, and her personal life suffered - prompting her to take time out from the spotlight to attend New York University.

The 25-year-old explains, "I was a mess in some ways and that had nothing to do with my choice of career.

"I was the luckiest girl in the world when I got the Princess Diaries films, but all the driven behaviour that you need to be successful as a teenager didn't help me when it came to my private life and social situations."

She adds, "So going to university helped me a lot. I used to worry too much and take myself too seriously." »

Screenwriting pals ink ABC Studios deal

21 August 2008 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith have sold a script to ABC Studios that treads familiar ground. For them, that is.

The duo, repped by Paradigm, Jaret Entertainment and Warren Dern, has strung together an enviable series of feature hits: "10 Things I Hate About You," "Legally Blonde" and "Ella Enchanted," and Wednesday night they attended the premiere of their newest comedy, "The House Bunny," which opens Friday.

Several months ago, Lutz and Smith's loopy champagne-and-therapy-fueled creative process came to light in an L.A Times column. ABC Studios, among others, apparently noticed and approached the two about spinning something out of it.

Now, ABC Studios has their loosely autobiographical script and is developing a series around what it calls "their friendship, partnership and (mis)adventures in Hollywood."

(Editor's note: THR's Jay A. Fernandez wrote the aforementioned column while at the Times.) »
