Emma Watson Decides Not To Put On The Glass Slipper For ‘Cinderella’

Emma Watson Decides Not To Put On The Glass Slipper For 'Cinderella'

It looks like Disney will have to keep looking for the princess to fill their cinematic glass slipper. Coming a few weeks after it was reported she was in early talks for “Cinderella,” it looks like Emma Watson won’t be getting in the pumpkin carriage.

Variety’s Marc Graser tweeted this evening quite plainly: “Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney’s CINDERELLA.” No reason for her exit, but it’s another bump in the road for Disney, who eager to get this movie in front of cameras this fall (and perhaps double eager following in the massive success of “Oz The Great And Powerful”). The film has already gone through one director, with Mark Romanek exiting the movie over differences about his cash and his vision for the movie. And while Kenneth Branagh is now set to direct, with Cate Blanchett still on board as the villain, the hunt is still one for the young lead.

No reason has been given for why Watson passed, though maybe she thought one princess-esque role in the upcoming, and presumably still happening, Guillermo Del Toro produced “Beauty & The Beast” which (last we heard) is aiming to shoot this summer. He’s been attached to direct, but in recent updates, the movie seems to have fallen off his plans, so we could see him tasking it to another filmmaker while he puts his Guillermo Del Toro Presents stamp on it. We’ll see what happens with that, but Watson won’t be Cinderella at any rate.

Alicia Vikander!!


hallelujah! I'm getting sick of Emma Watson, tbh

now I just want Hollywood to realise what a bad actress she is




Good. They might get someone with talent now.


Her schedule must be full. That's good news.


She decided not to do Cinderella, so I guess her schedule is full.


I hope they get Imogen Poots.


I hope they get Imogen Poots.


Is Hollywood finally realizing Watson can't act and the only reason she got where she is is because of Potter?


People are insane lol.. All information about Cinderella came from Variety, which is one the most reliable sources. From the beginning it was said that the role was offered to Emma, and now the reporter from Variety said she declined the offer.


Or she didn't get the part but her PR team is making it so she turned them down instead.

Emily Blunt replacing her in Your Voice in My Head is a total upgrade. I think Cinderella talks was all a PR stunt so Emma could get GDT off his ass with Beauty.


She also dropped out of Your Voice In My Head…
