Last month Emma Watson was linked to new live-action fairy tale remakes: Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella.  Playing both Belle and Cinderella is probably too much princess for any one actress, so Watson has understandably ruled out one project.  Variety’s Marc Graser tweeted, “Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney’s CINDERELLA.”  Graser did not explain Watson’s reasoning, but did tweet in reply, “Details to come.”  So stay tuned.

Disney may go back to the drawing board with the original shortlist: Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair).  Cate Blanchett is expected to play the evil stepmotherKenneth Branagh (Thor) will direct.  The studio hopes to get Cinderella in front of cameras in London this fall for a possible 2014 release.
