Emma Watson: Cinderella in Disney's Live Action Film?

Emma Watson may be trying on a glass slipper sometime soon as she’s in talks to star in the upcoming Disney film Cinderella!

According to Variety, the 22-year-old actress would play the title character in this live action adaptation directed by Kenneth Branagh. Cate Blanchett is set to play the role of her wicked stepmother.

Actresses Gabriella Wilde, Imogen Poots, and Alicia Vikander were reportedly attached to the role before Emma was considered.

Production is scheduled to begin sometime this fall for a 2014 release date.

    I’m calling a balk on this one, Emma is already scheduled to play Belle for Beauty and the Beast, why would she be playing a second Disney Princess?

    I like Emma but Disney should also consider Chelsea Kane. I don’t know if its a musical but she has a really cool voice and was a great dancer on DWTS.
