Helena Bonham Carter Joins Cinderella as Fairy Godmother

by at . Comments

We've been wondering what kind of tone Kenneth Branagh's live-action Cinderella would take.

With the announcement that Helena Bonham Carter has joined the cast, it's looking like it will be a fantastical epic in the vein of Bonham Carter's other fairy tale movie, Alice in Wonderland.

Of course Bonham Carter can also play gritty, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Bonham Carter will play the Fairy Godmother, alongside Lilly James as Cinderella and Cate Blanchett as the Evil Stepmother.

Richard Madden plays Prince Charming, with Holliday Granger and Sophia McShera in talks for the Evil Stepsisters.

Cinderella is expected to begin filming this fall.
