Cate Blanchett is attached to play the wicked stepmother, while an actress is still being sought for the starring role.

The Devil Wears Prada screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna wrote the first draft of the script, with Twilight: New Moon director Chris Weitz now on board for a rewrite.

Branagh most recently directed 2011's Thor, and is currently helming Jack Ryan, in which he will also star.

Cinderella is scheduled to begin shooting in London in the autumn.
