Emma Watson in Talks to Star in Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Cinderella’


Variety reports Emma Watson may be trying on that infamous glass slipper! The Harry Potter series star is in talks to star in Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Cinderella.


Watson has been busy since the “Harry Potter” franchise finished its run at the megaplex. She received raves for her role in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and has completed roles in Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” the Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg comedy “This is the End,” and signed on to the drama “Your Voice in My Head,” that David Yates was attached to direct for Warner Bros. before he left the project last year. The Disney version isn’t the first time Watson has circled the Cinderella role. In 2009, she considered starring in a musical featuring the character that Marilyn Manson was planning to write and direct.
