Los Angeles: Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has boarded the cast of Sony’s retelling of the fairytale “Cinderella”.
The film stars singer Camila Cabello in the title role, with Billy Porter as the fairy godmother and Idina Menzel as the evil stepmother. British actor Nicholas Galitzine will star opposite Cabello as Prince Robert.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brosnan will play the king, father to Galitzine’s Robert.
To be directed by Kay Cannon, the film is billed as “a modern reimagining” of the traditional story, with “a musical bent thrown in for good measure”.
Cabello will also be involved in the music of the film.
Popular TV host-actor James Corden will produce the project along with Leo Pearlman through their banner Fulwell73.
