The project is said to be a modern re-imagining of the classic fairytale of the orphaned girl (Camila Cabello) with an evil step-mother featuring a musical bent. Kay 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 pitch 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. The Cinderella project will serve as Cabello’s feature acting debut, and she will also be involved in the music for the movie.
