Disney has made a 7-figure pitch deal for a new live-action film based on the classic Cinderella tale. Deadline reports the film will be written by Aline Brosh McKenna, whose previous credits include The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses. McKenna has also written the upcoming Patrick Wilson comedy, Morning Glory, and also wrote a draft of Cameron Crowe’s next film, We Bought a Zoo, which Crowe is currently rewriting.
Not much is known about this new take on Cinderella. It’s not even known how much of a “new take” it will be on the well known fairy tale or if will just retell the same story. All we know is that Disney is hoping to strike gold again after their recent success with their reimagining of Alice of Wonderland, which has now grossed $980,533,915 worldwide. Simon Kinberg will produce the new version of Cinderella.
