Mark Romanek to Direct Re-Imagining of CINDERELLA for Disney

     August 12, 2011


Snow White isn’t the only Disney princess getting her big live-action update. In addition to the multiple Snow White projects currently in development, Disney is fashioning a live-action re-imagining of Cinderella. Deadline reports that the studio is courting Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) to direct the film, which has a script by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada). The Mouse House put the project into development last May, after Alice in Wonderland made a ridiculous amount of money.

The script is described as an update of the classic tale, as it finds the prince set up for a politically arranged marriage that is threatened when he meets Cinderella. I’m a big fan of Romanek. The director has been courted for a number of high-profile projects as of late (including The Wolverine), and if the deal goes through it’ll be exciting to see a director of his dramatic talents take on this fairy tale update.
