Filming has just began on a new telling of Cinderella, and while live-action remakes of classic Disney cartoons is nothing new, this cast is creating well-deserved hype.
Helmed by director Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect), this remake will star Camila Cabello as the titular glass-slippered protagonist, Missy Elliott in the role of the Town Crier, the extraordinary Billy Porter as the Fairy Godmother and James Corden (who's also producing the project) as one of the mice.
They all join Pierce Brosnan (James Bond), Minnie Driver (Tarzan), Idina Menzel (Frozen), and Charlotte Spencer (Dark Shadows). The film is a musical comedy that re-imagines the traditional Cinderella story in which our heroine is an ambitious young woman whose dreams are bigger than the world will allow.
Sony is expected to release the flick on February 5, 2021.
