Holliday Grainger Cast as Stepsister in Cinderella

by at .  Updated at . Comments

From her roles in The Borgias, Jane Eyre, Anna Karenina and Bel Ami that Holliday Grainger can pull off a period dress (that sounds gross but it's not).

That's why we can feel pretty confident that she'll at the very least look good in her newly acquired role as one of the stepsisters in the upcoming live-action Cinderella.

Lily James will play the role of Cinderella, with Cate Blanchett signed on as the Evil Stepmother, and Richard Madden as Prince Charming.

Kenneth Branagh will direct the film, which may take a grittier approach to the superhero or may be more in the vein of  Oz: The Great and Powerful or Alice in Wonderland.
