disney live action cinderella casts lily james

That tricky glass slipper must have been ill-fitting for the foot of Cinderella frontrunner Saoirse Ronan, because Disney has chosen another fair maiden to depict their live action little Cinder girl…

Downton Abbey's sassy young thang Lily James!

Lily will face off against the intimidatingly talented Cate Blanchett who will play the iconic Evil Stepmother in the Kenneth Branagh directed flick.

Oooo we can't wait to see who Cinderella's Prince Charming will be! And what about the fairy godmother… or her silly stepsisters?!

Maybe the ORIGINAL Cinderella hopeful AKA Emma Watson would feel more suited being a nasty sister?

She can put all those sassy skillz she gained from depicting a b*tchy thief in the Bling Ring to good use!

HA yeah right.

Ch-ch-check out some recent snaps of Lily James (below)!

Disney Cashing In On MORE Old Faves, Plans Beauty & The Beast Live Action Remake!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyBusiness Blitz

And it's totes going to be in headache-inducing visually striking 3D!!

Now that the dream-makers over at Disney know the company will inevitably make BANK on any remake/spin-off of a beloved classic — Oz The Great and Powerful KILLED it at the box office on opening weekend — they are planning yet ANOTHER adaptation of a past, iconic project…

Beauty and the Beast!! The film, tentatively called Beast, will be written by critically acclaimed scribe Joe Ahearn, who wrote Danny Boyle's latest flick Trance.

But wait (we hear you ask) isn't Guillermo Del Toro already directing a live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson?! YUP, at least as far as we know! AND there is a dark and twisty French version being made starring Black Swan's Vincent Cassel!

We're VERY curious as to how Disney will set their live-action version apart from all of the others, unless they just do a shot for shot remake of the original, which would be majorly pointless.

Well, at least the House of Mouse will have (and has had) PLENTY of opportunities to test the formula with Cinderella and Angelina Jolie's Sleeping Beauty spinoff Maleficent

We just hope hope hope that Disney doesn't damage this already flawless gem!

Emma Watson ThisClose To Slipping On Cinderella's Glass Slipper!

Cinderelli Cinderelli, we can totally envision the sweet Emma Watson as Cinderelli!

Which could potentially happen, as Harry Potter's leading lady is reportedly in talks to STAR in a live-action version of the CLASSIC Disney Princess tale Cinderella, based on the even more classic — and far more sinister — folk tale made famous by the Brothers Grimm!

The revamped version of the story will be directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and features Galadriel Cate Blanchett as the WICKED stepmother!

Cinderella is the latest installment in Disney's reworking of their iconic animations, and follows such eye-candy treats as Oz:The Great and Powerful, Alice in Wonderland, and Angelina Jolie's under-construction project, Maleficent.

We wonder, IF Emma turns down the part of Cinderella, who could possibly fit their acting foot into the sparkly glass slipper that is this film?!

What do U think perezcious readers?!

ALF Is About To Be Reincarnated On The BIG SCREEN!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Hide your kitties because one of our favorite aliens of all time is coming back into our lives at some point in the future.

Sony Pictures Animation has acquired the rights to the character from the classic 80s sitcom and will be working on producing a live-action/CG feature, which will be similar in style to The Smurfs.

In case you forgot about this pop culture gem, ALF was about an "alien life form" named Gordon Shumway who crash landed on Earth and moved in with a suburban family for weekly HIGHlarity between 1986 and 1990.

If the producers behind the family flick can turn The Smurfs into a $563 million hit, than we have faith they can do the same, if not even better, with ALF!

We'll miss the puppet, but are looking forward to seeing the creature's updated design. Are U?

Marvel Developing A TV Show Set In The Avengers Universe

Yes!!!

But since a television budget can't possibly live up to the standards set by the blockbuster movie, don't expect any of the actual Avengers to be major characters.

No!!!

Still, what we're hearing sounds pretty cool. Marvel is in talks with ABC to produce a live-action drama series set in the same universe as The Avengers. Instead of focusing on the heroes though, the series may instead end up being something entirely different — like a high-concept cop show.

It's all speculation for now, but the comic book company has
