Deadline is reporting that Walt Disney Pictures has made a 7-figure pitch deal for a live action re-imagining of the classic fairy tale Cinderella, to be written by The Devil Wears Prada/27 Dresses scribe Aline Brosh McKenna.
It is unknown how much, if any, the new take will deviate from the original. I assume that the new project is either a modern day adaptation or a Pirates-like period film with an action comedy twist. Ths is just a guess on my part — I doubt we’ll be seeing a live-action adaptation in the same style as the 101 Dalmations film from years back. Simon Kinberg will produce. Speculation is that it could be shot and distributed in 3D.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
