After the success of 'Alice in Wonderland' (over $1 billion - yes, with a B - worldwide), Disney has been hot to reboot their Disney princess movies. With a 'Sleepy Beauty' reboot on the way (in the form of Angelina Jolie's 'Maleficent'), the next live-action princess film on the way was scheduled to be 'Cinderella' but that was before director Mark Romanek abruptly left the project. What Prince Charming could step in and rescue the project before it turned into a pumpkin? Enter: Kenneth Branagh.

Mark Romanek has proved himself to be a master behind the camera when doing short films and with the feature 'Never Let Me Go,' but he seems to have trouble working on studio movies. For the second time in his career he's leaving a big budget movie, as it's being reported that he's off Walt Disney's live-action 'Cinderella' reimagining.

Last week, the news broke that the ever-wonderful Cate Blanchett was close to joining director Mark Romanek's 'Cinderella' in the role of the evil stepmother, firmly establishing it as the Hollywood Revision Of A Classic Fairy Tale to watch out for. It still feels odd that the director of 'One Hour Photo' and 'Never Let Me Go' is making a Cinderella movie, but putting quality actors on the screen is the first step in giving us hope. On the heels of the Blanchett news, Variety reports that the short list for the title role is down to three actresses: Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander and Gabriella Wilde. You'll probably recognize Ronan from 'Atonement,' 'The Lovely Bones' and 'Hanna' and if you were unlucky enough to see 'The Three Musketeers' you may remember Wilde, but Vikander seems to be a newcomer, making this role her potential big break and her own potential Cinderella story. Life imitating art and so forth.

Okay, so we've had Snow White twice ('Mirror Mirror' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman'), and we're going to get 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' and the new take on 'Sleeping Beauty' with 'Maleficent,' so what fairy tales are left to redo as a live action re-imagings? It turns out the next one will likely be 'Cinderella' and it could be pretty great as it's got Mark Romanek attached to direct and is looking to land Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother.
