According to Deadline, Camila Cabello will put her acting skills to the test in the upcoming Cinderella film, which has just been picked up by Amazon. According to the source, Amazon Studios has agreed to buy the project from Sony Pictures.
With many studios still playing it safe when it comes to theater reopenings around the world, an agreement was developed to make the film premiere on Amazon Prime. Cabello's first feature film will feature her in the lead role, supported by an all-star supporting cast.
Idina Menzel, Pierce Brosnan, Billy Porter, Nick Galitzine, and Minnie Driver, as well as James Corden, who will also act as a producer, join the cast. Kay Cannon, who directed Blockers with John Cena and Leslie Mann will be the director of this film.
Cannon also penned the script, and if her track record is any indication the new Cinderella should be a hit. The screenplays for all three Pitch Perfect films, as well as 46 episodes of 30 Rock, were written by the creator.
Cinderella would be a fresh take on an old classic, with 'pop songs from contemporary artists,' according to Deadline. Cabello plays a key role in the film's many musical elements, as well as starring in it. Porter would play her Fairy Godmother, whom she affectionately refers to as 'Fab G'. Menzel will take on the villainous role of Cinderella's step-mother, while Galitzine will portray Prince Robert with Bronson serving as his father.
Cinderella will be available on Amazon Prime later this year.
