CATEGORIES Movie NewsAfter Emma Watson turned down the title role in Disney's upcoming "Cinderella" movie, the studio and director Kenneth Branagh are testing to see if the slipper fits three young, up-and-coming actresses.
As Deadline reports, the princess search has narrowed down to 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."
The live-action version of the classic fairy tale already found its evil stepmother in Cate Blanchett. And Deadline says that "Game of Thrones" wannabe-king Richard Madden is being eyed to play the Prince.
The clock is ticking on the decision; if Branagh wants to film this fall for a 2014 release, he'll need to crown his Cinderella soon.
