Billy Porter Set To Star In ‘Cinderella’

It’s officially time to get excited about the upcoming Sony movie musical Cinderella. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that icon Billy Porter is in talks to join the film and there’s no one else we could see in this role.

The Pose actor is in talks to play non-other than the fairy godmother. Details of the movie are being kept under wraps, but it is believed writer and director Kay Cannon is planning a contemporary take on the classic fairytale.

Singer Camila Cabello will also star in the film and is also reportedly heavily involved in the music for the film.

It will be produced by Late Late Show host James Corden and Leo Pearlman. The movie was developed from an original idea by Corden, and Sony is set to fast track the movie for production.

Disney’s classic 1950 animated movie is still one of the best-known adaptations of the fairytale. It was also remade into a live-action version in 2015 starring Lily James which grossed $554 million worldwide. It’ll be interesting to see how this movie will set itself apart from the rest.
