The report is light on details, but mentions that Porter is circling the role of the fairy godmother. The actor recently won the Emmy for his role as the fierce and fabulous ballroom emcee Pray Tell in the FX drama.

The project is said to be a modern re-imagining of the classic fairytale of the orphaned girl with an evil step-mother featuring a musical bent. Cannon, who wrote the Pitch Perfect comedies, earned three Emmy nominations for NBC’s 30 Rock and directed last year’s comedy Blockers, will direct.

The idea for the project stems from an original idea from late-night talk show host James Corden, who will produce alongside his Fulwell 73 partner Leo Pearlman. The studio is putting the Cinderella film on the fast-track for production.

Cabello was originally a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony. After going solo, the singer’s single, Havana, hit #1 on the Hot 100, Billboard 200, and Artist 100 charts, as well as becoming the most-streamed song ever by a female artist on Spotify. The Cinderella project will serve as Cabello’s feature acting debut, and she will also be involved in the music for the movie.
