The musical film remake of Cinderella 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. 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 and write the film.

Joining Camila Cabello in her film acting debut as the titular princess are Emmy winner Billy Porter and Tony winner and Frozen star Idina Menzel, who is portraying the roles of fairy godmother and evil stepmother, respectively. The film will also feature Nicholas Galitzine (The Beat Beneath My Feet) as Prince Robert and Pierce Brosnan as the King along with Maddie Baillio and Charlott Spencer. Emmy-winning comedic actors James Corden (Peter Rabbit) and John Mulaney (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) along with Romesh Ranganathan (The Reluctant Landlord) have also joined the cast as the mice-turned-footmen sidekicks of the titular character.

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.
