Kenneth Branagh has entered talks to direct the live-action version of "Cinderella" in the works at Disney Pictures.

Mark Romanek left the project several weeks ago over creative differences, namely his vision being "too dark and edgy" for the studio.

Cate Blanchett remains attached to play the wicked stepmother. Chris Weitz and Aline Brosh McKenna penned the script with shooting aiming to begin this Fall in London for a 2014 release.
