Emma Watson Says No to Cinderella
She has the industry clout to be uber-selective when it comes to movie roles, and Emma Watson has decided she’s not interested in playing “Cinderella.”
Despite previous reports that she was keen for the role, the “Harry Potter” actress turned down the gig offered to her by Walt Disney Pictures.
As a result, Cate Blanchett is the only big name star on the roster at this point, and filming is slated to begin later this fall in London.
“Cinderella” brings together “The Devil Wears Prada” writier Aline Brosh McKenna and “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” director Chris Weitz.
