Or at least she WILL be!
Just as Angelina Jolie will appear as the villainous Maleficent in a live-action re-telling of Sleeping Beauty, Cate Blanchett is currently in negotiations to take on the role of the evil stepmother in an updated version of Cinderella set to be produced by Disney.
Thanks to the success of their Alice in Wonderland remake with Johnny Depp, the House of Mouse has been developing this project since May of 2010, and Never Let Me Go director Mark Romanek has been tapped to take the helm, with Chris Weitz re-writing the previously drafted script by Aline Brosh McKenna!
Wow! Talk about a whole LOTTA talent coming together for this!
It certainly sounds as though it has A LOT of potential!
And you KNOW Cate will just dominate in that kind of role!
Can't wait to find out which lucky lady will be putting on the glass slippers, though!
How about U? Are U looking forward to a new, live-action Cinderella??
