Lily James: 'Cinderella' for Disney's Live-Action Film!

Downton Abbey‘s Lily James has been cast as the title character in the upcoming live action version of Cinderella!

The 24-year-old actress will be co-starring alongside Cate Blanchett as the evil step-mother in the Kenneth Branagh-directed flick.

At one point, it was rumored that Emma Watson would take the role, but negotiations stalled.

The studio hopes to begin production later this year, with a 2014 release date in mind.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Lily James as the star of the live action Cinderella movie coming next year???

Ordinary. Typical.

I was really hoping they’d give it to Bella Heathcote. I don’t get it. But I guess since they were looking at Watson first they were after someone basic.

This is gonna FLOP.

# 4

I really wanted Bella H. to take the role :\ Ohh well good for her. :)

# 5

@hay: YES! I really wanted her! :) her looks would fit perfectly.

# 6

Most wives work their a*ses off and live their lives normally without ending with a prince. Why would they tell their daughters to watch this?

# 7

Who cares who’s playing Cinderella? This movie is going to be all about Cate Blanchett!!! :D

# 8

wrong choice for Cinderella.
I agree Bella heathcote would’ve been better.
lily james’ character on Downton is super annoying.

@hay: oh snap nice sideswipe at Watson lol

this reminds me of when nikki reed was cast in twilight… just doesn’t fit.

Wow, she is pretty. Lily uses Romance Toys from AthenaToysDotcom

@hay:
Basic? That the best you can come up with? Oh well, might as well give it to Bella Whadaho? Nobody even knows her so she clearly needs the exposure.

Okay honestly, I think that it is a terrible idea to remake Cinderella. Cinderella is a a classic movie that many people love. If you remake it in live action, people may begin to not like it or just start hating Disney. So I would double think the idea. Thanks
