Disney’s live-action Cinderella movie set to release in 2015

 
It’s all systems go for the new live-action Cinderella film from Disney, the studio has put a release date on the project. Here are the details and casting-list announced so far.
 
Lily-James-Fast-Girl-InsertWith the Disney princesses line being one of the company’s best selling brands, it’s easy to see why Disney would be excited to expand it. The film will be directed by Kenneth Branagh and now has a release date of March 13, 2015.
 
The film already has an impressive cast-list lined up including Lily James (shown on the right), Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) and Helena Bonham Carter who are all set to star in the film which is being produced by Allison Shearmur, David Barron and Simon Kinberg.
 
That list narrows down the princess, the prince, Lady Tremaine the fairy godmother. Sophie McShera will play Drizella and Holliday Grainger is assumably the other step-sister. Though we are still waiting to hear who will be playing Gus-Gus.
